Databases

The storage of cultural heritage data is currently performed in many different ways, using different database formats. Click inside the circle and read about the database you are perhaps using. We can access data from you regardless of which database you use.

 

Museum Link can help you if:

 

  • You don’t currently have a database but would like a simple and inexpensive solution that supports the Spectrum standard.
  • You have a database that you would like to connect to open data sources.
  • You have a database for which you would like to implement a search function on your website.
  • You would like to use an app in order to add data to your database.

MS-SQL Server

Regardless of version or operating system, we support the retrieval of data from SQL Server.

MySQL

Could this be the most common database used within the cultural heritage sector? This forms the basis for Collective Access and many other systems. Simple to integrate.

MariaDB

A variant of MySQL. As simple to manage and integrate as MySQL.

MongoDB

Ultra-fast database that is not a relational database. It is, however, simple to integrate. We use MongoDB when it is necessary to perform fast searches in databases with large amounts of data.

Collective Access

This is something of an industry standard when it comes to storing cultural heritage data for many small and medium-sized cultural heritage institutions? We offer Collective Access when you choose one of our databases.

MS-Access

Many databases have been created in MS Access. A lot of work is carried out in order to create sophisticated solutions which do not always work completely satisfactorily. There are limitations regarding web-use, connection to the outside world, and storage capacity.

Filemaker

Just like MS-Access, FileMaker has a large cohort of users, and many databases have been created using FileMaker. A lot of work is carried out in order to create sophisticated solutions which do not always work completely satisfactorily. There are limitations regarding web-use, connection to the outside world, and storage capacity.

Excel

Many people have their first experience of building databases using MS Excel. Excel's simplicity and impressive capacity (considering it is not a dedicated database) will cover a lot of basic needs. But, before too long, the need for a genuine database solution will become apparent. We provide you with help to transfer your data from Excel.
