“We didn’t need to research if we could implement IIIF, or how to do it. We simply asked Gallery Systems to deploy the latest eMuseum upgrade. They did, and we gained an important new feature: IIIF functionality.”
Haidar Hadi, Digital Database Developer, Hoover Institution, Stanford University

“We use eMuseum to publish collections online, and a variety of social media platforms to make those collections available to our audience. I love that we can make fragile items available to everyone online–that’s the culmination of all those technologies: digitization, managing and publishing data, and connecting to audiences.”
Lindsey Richardson, Curator of Collections, The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza
“Working with Gallery Systems’ web team on the Seattle Art Museum’s Chinese Painting and Calligraphy OSCI project meant having highly knowledgeable support and leadership directly from architects of our database systems, TMS and eMuseum, which are the basis for the online catalog.”

Share your collection online by publishing context-rich object and exhibition information to the web. An online collection offers vetted, detailed information to your audience, allowing them to create sharable, personalized groupings of favorite works and view all related media. eMuseum sites are fully responsive, so visitors can access your site via any web-enabled device.
eMuseum is fully integrated with TMS. Any changes you make to your collection data in TMS are reflected in eMuseum, minimizing data entry and ensuring consistency. eMuseum provides virtually limitless possibilities for displaying your collection information and integrating with other applications and services. eMuseum supports Linked Data for extended context linking and offers optional API services for even more creative data sharing and integration.
We match the appearance and style of your existing website to give users a seamless experience when navigating from your main site to your collections. Powerful integrated CSS technology makes sophisticated custom-styling quick and easy. Your collection can be displayed in a variety of attractive formats, from eye-catching slideshows to data-rich list views. You can even embed audio and video. eMuseum can be configured with different templates and profiles that allow you to customize your site for a variety of audiences and interests.
With eMuseum’s familiar Google-like functionality, visitors can search across every field in your eMuseum database, or use advanced fields and filters for more complex queries. eMuseum also suggests related objects-of-interest to users based on their search criteria. You control the configuration of searchable fields, as well as how results are returned to users. eMuseum also supports multilingual searching, opening your collection to an even wider audience.
With eMuseum, you are in complete control of the information published to your site, including how that information is displayed and accessed. Non-public data can be restricted to authorized internal users. eMuseum allows you to create user accounts, manage rights, schedule automated refresh of your data, and decide exactly how collection records are grouped and displayed.
eMuseum tracks key metrics that can reveal the impact of your collection and the interests of your visitors. Along with conventional web metrics, eMuseum analytics measure collection-specific insights, such as object view counts and the most popular shared pages and images.
