January webinar: Exactly how to fund and select your next collections management system (CMS)

January 27, 2022, 12-1:30 pm

The last 18 months have proven just how critical it is to offer museum collections content online while museum doors remain closed. Many museum staff have learned just how limited their options are with an ill-fitting CMS, or worse, no CMS.

This online webinar will offer strategies and solutions for common challenges, including how to identify your unique CMS needs, how to create CMS specifications that lead you to the right fit, and importantly, how to fund it.

  • OMA members: $15
  • Non-members: $25
