Writing documents is a primary feature of ConservationSpace. Create reports with predefined templates or design new documents that fit specific needs. The system features task and workflow management. Documents link to cultural objects uploaded from an institution's collection management system. Key information automatically populates documents you create. The system is highly configurable for institutions or individuals working in private practice. Everything is all in one system and at a users fingertips.
Organize Your Work
ConservationSpace is designed to have cultural objects serve as the hub to store and display any documents, images, legacy materials, folders, projects, tasks or workflows associated with a cultural object. Information is organized by easy to use page tabs that display collection management information, documents associated with the cultural object, organizing folders and activities that are linked to the object and other useful related information. The software provides version tracking for any document created. Legacy document written prior to adopting ConservationSpace along with other files can be imported and saved in their native formats or as searchable PDF documents. Store everything in ConservationSpace and find it quickly.
Metadata - Building a World of Relationships
ConservationSpace does more than just write,organize, store and retrieve electronic files. Each cultural object in the system has metadata fields that allow users to store information. The software employs powerful semantic technology to create meaningful links between metadata, documents and other system items and opens new opportunities to discover relationships between cultural objects. Legacy files yield rich information since they become easily searchable when stored in the system.
A simple search can be done in seconds with a few easy steps. Results displayed may be sorted by relevance or other factors. Any text within a document, metadata fields, folder names, notes, tasks, legacy documents, etc., can be found using search terms that match information stored in the system. Complex searches that focus on specific metadata terms, relationships between objects or require filtering because the search results would yield a very large data set can be addressed by the advanced search feature in ConservationSpace.
