Posted by Michelle Brownridge on May 13th, 2019

This year MAS is looking for new museums to join the SaskCollections Database.  You do not need to already have a digital database to join; just an interest in working towards developing one. 

Why join the SaskCollections Program? 
• The database is completely online, so you can access it from anywhere you have internet
• MAS provides the software, so there is limited cost to the Museum
• Helps your museums to manage useable information about your collections
• Extremely effective tool of organizing, arranging, preserving, and display artifacts in your collections
• MAS has a back-up server where your information is stored as part of fees, so you don’t have to worry about losing your data
• Access to comprehensive support, both online resources and via our Museum Advisor, Kathleen
Optional: Create a front-end webpage to share your collection with the world via the internet (See MAS’s at http://saskcollections.org) as part as your annual fees

Requirements for Participation: 
• 2-3 dedicated staff/volunteers
• Staff/volunteers must be available for training
• Museums must be already organizing the collection in accordance with the Collections Documentation Manual for Saskatchewan Museums.
• A high-speed internet connection and an up-to-date computer
