Implementing MuseumPlusRIA for Enhanced Collections Accessibility

The Haffenreffer Museum of Anthropology is Brown University’s teaching museum and offers exhibits, public lectures, performances, symposia, festivals, and a broad range of programs and events for all ages. This year, the Museum migrated its collections data to MuseumPlusRIA, a cloud-based collections management system, that will allow the Museum staff to improve physical and intellectual access to the Haffenreffer’s collections.

The next phase of the MuseumPlusRIA implementation project, designing a web interface with a searchable portal, will open the collections online to the worldwide community and foster new opportunities for discovery, research, and collaboration.
