New in ResourceMD version 4.0
A completely new feature is Collections
which allows you to document Collection details such as Name, Accession Number, Summary, Compilers, Biography and an Inventory Sheet. Any number of Collections can be added.
Each Collection has up to 6 levels of Headings
which are systematically assigned to a Collection. For example:
Sorting and assigning Identifiers to Headings
- You capture details about the Collection and add Heading Level 1.
- You can assign any number of Heading Level 2 entries to a single Heading Level 1 entry.
- There are 6 levels, so you have the ability to record and manage highly detailed information about a collection and Items in the Collection.
- Also note that any number of Headings can be assigned at any Level – this gives you the ability to capture any depth of information required to comprehensively document a Collection.
- Each Heading, regardless of Level, can have additional information such as Abstract, multiple link (websites, etc.) and Notes.
Associating Collection Headings to an Item
- Sorting Headings has always been a difficult task, basically because the Identifiers frequently have a combination of numbers and letters. To offer the ability to keep your preferred Identifiers there is an independent Sort option which lets you sort your Headings according to the order you require. It is also easy to insert and change the Sort order.
- The ResourceMD also has a way of anticipating the next number for you when assigning Identifiers and Sorting.
Another very important feature of the ResourceMD, and new Collections feature, is the ability to assigning a Collection, and the various Headings, to an Item.
Additional functionality and features
The Collections feature can also be used to generate tagged outputs to be assimilated into other software.
With the inclusion of the Collections module, the ResourceMD can be used to efficiently tackle large inventory projects.
