Webinar Database Blues: An Action Plan for Selection and Implementation of a New CMS

Does the mere thought of opening your current database program give you chills? Are you tired of creating your own hacks to make your system “work” the way you need it to? Have you longed for a new and upgraded CMS, but worry your management will balk at the mere mention of a change? Please join us for a webinar focused exclusively on selecting and implementing a new database for museum collections. On November 4 at 1:00 p.m. ET, museum expert and consultant Rachael Cristine Woody will cover how to identify CMS needs, how to create CMS specifications, how to test and vet potential CMS options, and how to “sell” getting a new CMS to your boss.

Members: $25.00
Non-Members: $35.00
