Management of our collections has improved considerably since installing EMu. We now have a consistent system in use throughout the Museum, allowing users to query the data for research, learning & enjoyment. The addition of community-based Narratives has reconnected the Museum and its collections to source communities and users around the world.

We have never been told no, you can’t do something. Sometimes it takes a little bit more thought, and sometimes we’ve been gently guided in a slightly different direction, but we’ve learned to trust the Axiell Support team because we have never been steered wrong.

More and more of van Gogh’s world is going to become accessible on the net. Axiell is our partner and a great help to us in various decisions here as well.

Our ability now to be online and to have people access our collection in that way to complete research is really helping us to fulfil the mission to the public.
