Project Description

Members of Informatics Services team and of the CollectionSpace project team will perform a fit-gap design analysis of the Essig specimen management system, the collection management system used by the Essig Museum of Entomology at UC Berkeley.  The overall goal of this project is to explore and demonstrate whether CollectionSpace will meet the needs of the Essig Museum.  Subgoals of this effort include the following:

Schedule: Get as much of this done by the Steering Committee meeting on November 30, recognizing that time is very short.

Expectations: This is an assessment based on the existing functionality provided by the Essig system.  We want to capture the emerging needs and shortfalls of the current system as well.
