CollectiveAccess is a configurable cataloging tool and web-based application for museums, archives and digital collections. The programming requires little to no custom programming to support a variety of metadata standards and supports multilingual cataloging facilities. CollectiveAccess can also handle a long list of digital media formats including images, video, audio and document formats. Additionally, a variety of external data sources and services can be accessed for cataloging and data display within CollectiveAccess. The Library of Congress and Getty Art and Architecture are just a few of the external sources available to users.
