accurate information is vital to the security
and sustainability of our cultural heritage
“A sincere thanks for getting us to this milestone.
The site is amazing.”

- Our back-end is structured to deliver all the requisite core information linked together following cataloging best practices (see curate research). You can choose what to publish and how to display it, but the complete framework is there.
- Many of our software’s extras (commentaries, keywords, archives and supplemental tables) let you create enriched add-ons (animated and interactive elements) that draw from deeper levels of the database.
- Data are automatically formatted and styled by the system, so the transition to the web or print is flawless.
- Your back-end is joined to your site, so you publish from your database. You can compare your data to your site files. Publish and update your online publication whenever you wish.
- Your content can also be purposed for print or ePublishing.
When you are ready to publish you’ll have several options (at extra cost to be negotiated):
We can design a site for you – the same knowledge we put into our cataloging software we put into our websites. You determine the look and the feel and decide on the functionality.
Or, we can plug into your existing site – in which case we’ll work with your designer to integrate your catalogue.
Or, you can generate text files to incorporate into design for print—produce a book.
Or, you can do both (see “A Beautiful Partnership”).
