What Our Clients Say

“A few years ago we hired a consultant to catalog our small art library and prepare it for entry into the Bibliography module. Gallery Systems staff assisted with this import and it has made a world of a difference in the ability for staff and researchers to access our collection.”

Bethany Bannister-Andrews, Collections and Digital Assets Manager, Shangri La: Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design
“It’s the combination of having the objects, photographs, and the paper records available to students and researchers that truly brings value to our collection. Gallery Systems is an essential partner in our museum’s goals.”
David DeBono Schafer, Senior Collections Manager, The Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology at Harvard University
“Gallery Systems delivers a fantastic product, but what really sells me is their unstinting technical support. As well, their ongoing innovation and interest in their clients’ needs come together to make TMS the best product it can be.”
Christine Droll, Registrar, Database & Collections, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

“As TMS administrator, one of my favorite resources has been Jon Thristan, Project Consultant at Gallery Systems—I’ve learned so much from him!”

Hilde Bøe, Digital Collection Manager, Munch Museum
