Europeana Inside (ECK) GuideMarch 2015

In 2012 the Europeana Inside project started with the vision that cultural institutions should be able to easily provide content to Europeana. With this vision and the goal of lowering barriers to content sharing, the ECK – Easy Connection Kit – has been created. The ECK is a piece of software and documentation toolkit that has been integrated into existing commercial and open source Collection Management Systems as well as into aggregators. Moreover, the components that make up the ECK can be integrated into other systems for free.

Successful exhibition with many visitorsJune 2014

We’ve just returned from the Annual American Alliance of Museums meeting in Seattle. The exhibition hall (and the zetcom booth) were both very busy with attendees from all over the world.

We’re looking forward to continued dialogue over the weeks and months ahead, as we roll out the next version of MuseumPlusRIA.

Finland: Big Win for zetcom!May 2014

Our zetcom team is very proud to announce the decision of the National Board of Antiquities (NBA) in Helsinki to use MuseumPlusRIA as the new national Collection Management System!

 

The worldwide leading Collection Management System developers competed in a Europe-wide tendering procedure for this prestigious "Museum 2015" project. The goal of the "Museum 2015" project is to establish a central CMS for five pilot museums within one year and then distribute the new system to more Finnish museums. The webbased MuseumPlusRIA was rated the best system within this very thorough procurement process.

 

The large and diverse collections of the piloting museums are part of the Museum of Finnish Architecture, the Tuusla Art Museum, the Kuopio Museum of Cultural History, the Finnish National Gallery and the National Board of Antiquities.

 

We look very much forward to working with the NBA team as well as the piloting museums and the Finnish museums in general!

The Museum of the City of Athens has just acquired MuseumPlus. It was a crucial decision for the Museum since they have to successfully migrate 25.000 items of their diverse collections and databases of paintings, engravings, sculptures, pieces of furniture and important relics of modern Greek history, which represent a panorama of the evolution of Athens since the Frankish domination in the Middle Ages. By means of zetcom’s complementary eMuseumPlus solution, the Museum will be able to showcase various thematic virtual exhibitions on its web site in the near future.
