Welcome to the IRIS Collaborative
IRIS (Image Resource Information System) is a relational database created in FileMaker Pro for the cataloging of art images by Visual Resource professionals. IRIS is a cataloging tool that uses VRA Core and CCO standards and includes extensive authority files which can be edited easily and exported into presentations tools, such as MDID and ARTstor. IRIS is an informal non-profit cooperative project to which all members volunteer their time and expertise. An annual membership fee covers the costs of some technical help and the programming of yearly upgrades. Our wonderful FileMaker consultant/developer, Kathy Brown, is also available for on-site visits, the costs of which would be covered by the institution in need of assistance.
