Loans and Exhibitions

Organizing an exhibition is a complex, multi-faceted set of tasks that requires careful planning, management and tracking. MuseumPlusRIA ensures the professionalism and success of your exhibitions, providing efficient support across the entire process. Exhibition planning functionality is supported for coordinating venues, curators, lenders, borrowers, reserving objects, managing condition reports, organizing images and tracking complex shipping and loan logistics.


Movement and Transport

All objects, regardless of whether they are on temporary loan or deposit or part of the permanent collection, must be tracked while they are on museum premises. The Movement/Transport module in MuseumPlusRIA stores all information for any object movement, whether in the galleries, storage or in transit. The software manages all linked media for shipments, mode of transportation and relevant details for shippers, lenders, borrowers or couriers. Objects may be grouped for reporting purposes and linked to an exhibition, contract, or loan record.




Museums engage in many contracts and agreements related to loans, exhibitions and collection objects. MuseumPlusRIA lets you manage these agreements as linked media (pdfs etc) along with specific fields for data related to the contract, ensuring important details remain intact as related to museum activities. The contracts module may be used to keep track of incoming objects for acquisition consideration, loans, insurance, shipments, purchases or any other action where a contract is involved.
