Anna,

Thank you! That is a nice savings. We have PastPerfect, but need to update.
A panel discussion sounds good.

Software (networked for up to 5 users) and online component was about 2350.0o.
We joined AASLH to get a significant discount. Membership was about $100.00
but it saved us over 1000.00. There are some quirks, but overall, an easy and
cost-effective way to get your materials out there. And, lots of different
component options - books, archives, art, objects, multimedia (that's a
separate package, which I don't think we got), and there is additionally an
option to purchase an online exhibition program. We didn't do that.

p.s. - if folks are interested, or if others use PastPerfect or something
similar, this could be a good panel discussion for the group - ways to get your
materials out there and I would be willing to participate.

Anna,

How much did it cost to be able to put it online?

We've had the software for about a month. We have two people on staff working
on it - 1 most of the time, and me some of the time, plus an intern and a
volunteer who work on it several hours a week. It's involved, but easy enough
to learn and there are shortcuts for batches of info, which is super nice.

Anna,

Cool! How long did it take to get to this point?

Hi all - we're in the process of putting our museum and art collections online.
This is the start of things, with thousands more to come. In the meantime, if
you think there's anything botanical or medical that you might want to borrow,
feel free to peruse.
