Ready to Read: Demystifying Data Preparation for a New CMS

May 01, 2024

We are pleased to announce that Rachael Cristine Woody’s book, Demystifying Data Preparation for a New CMS, is now available from Lucidea Press.

Data is critically important to museum professionals’ daily functions—including those related to museum collections care, management, and access. Yet, there is so much data in our daily lives we rarely stop to ponder who first created it, nor how it is delivered.

This book outlines how to prepare museum content (data and assets) for migration to a new museum collections management system through a process of data evaluation, data remediation (cleanup), and data preparation—demystifying what can be an intimidating process and leading to the other side, where your data awaits you in a shiny new CMS.

The book’s chapters are:

  • Dismantling Barriers to a New CMS
  • Evaluating the Shape of Museum Data
  • Strategies for Museum Data Remediation
  • Choosing the Right Museum Data Storage
  • Preparing for Museum Data Migration
  • How to Prepare for a New Museum CMS

A print version will soon be available on Amazon, but for now, we are offering a free PDF copy here.

Consultant, author, and blogger Rachael Cristine Woody advises on museum strategies, collections management and grant writing for a wide variety of clients. Learn about Lucidea’s Argus solution for museum collections management and digitization and read more of Rachael’s blog posts here.
