Information Technology and Historical Societies Report

In 2010 the Royal Historical Society of Victoria surveyed affiliated societies to investigate how they were using technology to help manage and promote their collections in Victoria.

Part of the report focussed on cataloguing software used by historical societies, small museums and allied collections.

The report also compared the results from a similar survey conducted in 2003.

A copy of the report is available on the RHSV website:

Hi Vicki,
You possibly may be unaware I recently conducted a smaller case study, for my region. Six major institutions using InMagic, 21 historical societies and similar, one Mosaic, one Access, four Victorian Collections over 20 items, 10 under 20 items (although three of the ten also have InMagic)
