ConservationSpace


ConservationSpace is one of several information technology (IT) initiatives supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to benefit the museum and scholarly community. The goal of this project is to develop an open-source software application that will address a core need of the conservation community for a shared solution for documentation management. A digital approach would improve continuity in procedures, increase access, expand research opportunities, and better ensure the preservation of its documents.

This site serves as the primary work space for the project partners collaborating on the build phase of ConservationSpace.  Much of the documentation, notes, and other work product represented on this site is related to the crafting of the final system requirements and request for proposal to hire a software developer.  As part of the RFP development, the partners in working groups or teams, created a substantial dossier of documents, notes, and drawings to represent the “universe” of conservation work, documentation, and data. The Google site makes the process visible and accessible to the community at-large.
