The storage of cultural heritage data is currently performed in many different ways, using different database formats. Museum Link makes it simple for you to acquire a database that complies with cultural heritage standards (Spectrum). Choose one of Museum Link's databases, or your own database on your own server.
Simply connect your museum database to the rest of the world, and make it publicly available by means of open interfaces such as Europeana (EU), SOCH/K-samsök (Sweden), Finna (Finland) and Norvegiana (Norway). Museum Link has simple accesses to your data, which enables open data sources to access and publish your data. With Museum Link, you can specify how often the data is to be synchronised, which data is to be synchronised, and with which rights.
The Museum Link app enables you to simply add pictures to your database. Normally, material is added to cultural heritage databases via traditional computers. Pictures are manually uploaded to the database. With Museum Link, you can upload pictures to your database using an app (available on App Store and Google Play). This has the benefit of being a much simpler process. Pictures are uploaded directly to your database from a smartphone - the picture is registered including such information as photographer, heading, text, category, specification of rights, key search word(s) and GPS position.
Via Museum Link, you can have a website with WordPress pre-installed connected to your cultural heritage database. If you need some design help, we can provide that too!
Museum Link's search function enables the simple and detailed searching of your database, or broader searching with returns from open data sources.
