The Mellon Foundation sponsored a project to create ConservationSpace, a web-based document management system developed specifically to address the needs of conservators. The software marries the versatility of a word processor with the capabilities of a database. Users can manage examination and treatment reports, images, notes, and other records associated with a work of art via a browser-based system with remote storage. The system is highly configurable and designed to interface with existing collection management systems. In this video conservators discuss how ConservationSpace addresses their needs.
