Art Sulzer with the Maritime Industry Museum at Fort Schuyler is seeking guidance from the membership:
“While our museum has been around for over 25 years and our history goes back to the founding of the school in 1874, we do not really have a professional staff and are certainly not professional historians, curator or archivists. . . . [Here] are a few questions to other CAMM members for their guidance based on their museum experience.
1) Inventory–We presently use Past Perfect 4.0 and are considering 5.0, or is there a better software to consider?
2) Looking for information on a system that lets museum visitors use a cell phone for guided tours or use a barcode through their phone like they can at Kalmar Nyckel’s exhibit.
3) Information on writing /developing Executive Director, Curator, Administrative Assistant and Board Member job descriptions.”
Please email your thoughts to Sulzmarine@aol.com
Art plans to summarize his findings and we will include them on our “Members Only” page.
