I’m pleased to announce that my new book, How to Select, Buy, and Use a Museum CMS, is now available. Published by Lucidea Press, it explains how to search for, select, buy, implement, and maximize the value of the right museum collections management system for your institution.

In order to deliver the best return on investment in a collections management system, staff need to know how to begin the search for the right CMS, how to navigate the procurement process, how to prepare for what migration will entail, what workflows, standards, and tools they should be aware of—and how to use the CMS to its maximum potential.

With supporting these objectives in mind, my book chapters are:

  • Why You Need a (Better) CMS
  • How to Begin the Search for the Right CMS
  • Navigating the Procurement Process & Selecting the Right CMS
  • How to Prepare for CMS Implementation and Migration
  • CMS Workflows, Standards, & Tools to Use
  • Maximizing the Value of Your CMS

Ron Aspe, Lucidea’s CEO, kindly said he believes that “both those new to the CMS procurement process and those who want an update on the latest approaches will benefit from the practical guidance in this book”. I do hope it will inspire you as you begin your journey toward the best CMS for your museum.

Print versions are available for purchase at, but for the moment you can get a free PDF copy in advance, courtesy of Lucidea, here.
