CatalogIt Puts Collections Management and Community Engagement in Your Hands


In these changing times, CatalogIt helps museums find creative and dynamic ways to interact and engage with their communities.

CatalogIt is a powerful, collaborative and intuitive collections management system that enables secure access anywhere, anytime, across both mobile and desktop devices. CatalogIt enables you to tell your stories by capturing the intricate web of detail that surrounds each object in your collection. The interface makes it easy to discover, record and present your collections in an accessible, flexible and affordable way.  Each subscription includes the CatalogIt HUB, a simple web publishing platform for quickly and selectively publishing collections making them publicly discoverable and searchable.

Through the CatalogIt HUB, museums selectively share virtual collections from anywhere. By creating QR codes linked to your collections on the HUB and providing a printed hand-out with those codes, you can easily direct visitors to view information about items in your galleries on their own devices – eliminating the potential risk of huddling around labels while encouraging social distancing. For more information on how QR codes can help in these new, cautious times, please visit our recent blog post.

With full remote access to their database via CatalogIt, museum staff and volunteers can easily work from home, keeping the team both safe and productive. Users have full access to collections no matter where they are in the museum, whether working in the gallery taking down an exhibition or working on an inventory in storage, your collection and loans are always at hand. You can edit data and add images easily from your mobile device and share your collections with anyone anytime from anywhere.

CatalogIt is a full-featured collections management platform providing museums comprehensive ways to track accessions, loans, deaccessions, exhibitions and more. Users can upload high resolution images, PDF, Word and Excel documents and attach live web links directly in CatalogIt records. With a vast selection of profiles to connect objects to people, places, events and even each other, the full story of each object is at your fingertips. Distinct, authoritative classifications are available for all sorts of objects allowing for customized cataloging based on object type and all fields are searchable so you can retrieve all of your information easily. CatalogIt also integrates Nomenclature 4.0 and offers properties for Getty resources.

With plans starting as low as $360 per year (which includes 25,000 Entries, 5 users and web publishing through the CatalogIt HUB), CatalogIt is an affordable and powerful alternative for any sized museum. For a limited time, CatalogIt is offering a free, no-strings attached migration from Past Perfect with a 60 day free trial. If you are not using Past Perfect, CatalogIt is offering a 15 month subscription for the cost of 12. Sign up for a free account (for up to 100 entries) to try us out.

AMM and WFM would like to take a moment to express our gratitude for member companies like CatalogIt, whose contributions and continued support will make it possible to host our conference in Milwaukee in 2021. Thank you!
