Axiell Calm offers a complete “all in one” solution to the current and emerging needs of Museums, Archives, Record Offices and other organisations within the Cultural Services sector.
Calm leads the way in addressing core issues in collection management: standards, EAD and EAC, linked data, OAI and record harvesting, multimedia digital repository, interoperability, Web enabled searching, comprehensive authority control.
All in all, it means that records, museum objects, local history books, pamphlets or digital assets can be catalogued within one database without compromising standards.
Axiell Calm uses recognised international standards including ISAD(G), ISAAR(CPF), EAD and EAC. The graphical tree browser enables material to be viewed within its hierarchical context. In combination with the sophisticated hit list overview function, this allows collections to be sorted intellectually during cataloguing. A full suite of office processes are supported including accession/deposit, conservation, authority control, enquiry management, loans and productions. Digital assets are managed through the multimedia/images functionality.
Calm is a SPECTRUM compliant collection management system for museums and art galleries. An object’s complete administrative and preservation history can be recorded and viewed through a series of linked functions including condition check, conservation management, current and normal location management through controlled movement history, and full loan audit trail.
