The Museum System (TMS), re-assessment and photography
To catalogue the collection and publish the data online, the museum makes use of The Museum System (TMS). From 2014 until the July 2018, the museum is carrying out a re-assessment of the collection. The project encompasses the entire collection with the exception of works on paper. Through this project, the museum will soon be able to publish a large proportion of the objects online with up-to-date information logged in TMS and a registration image or a professional photograph. The data for the website Boijmans Collection Online, which was launched in 2016, is generated by TMS. The museum has also begun a large-scale photography project with the aim of producing professional photographs of as many objects as possible. For this project, the Documentation Centre is paying extra attention to authors’ rights. Before objects can be published online, copyright has to be cleared. The eventual aim is to make the entire collection accessible online.
