Lucidea Press releases new museum CMS title Demystifying Data Preparation

Vancouver, BC -- April 25, 2024. Lucidea has announced that museum expert Rachael Cristine Woody's new book, Demystifying Data Preparation for a New CMS, is available now. The latest publication from Lucidea Press offers pragmatic advice from Ms. Woody, a seasoned museum expert, consultant, and author, blogger, and popular webinar presenter.

This book outlines how to prepare museum content (data and assets) for migration to a new museum collections management system through a process of data evaluation, data remediation (cleanup), and data preparation—demystifying what can be an intimidating process and leading to the other side, "… where your data awaits you in a shiny new CMS."

Ms. Woody is the founder of Relicura, and provides services to museums, libraries, and archives. Her experience includes the successful launches of multiple digital projects that incorporated advanced digitization technology, collaborative portals, and the migration of collection information into collections management systems.

As the developer of the Argus museum CMS, Lucidea publishes professional development content aligned with its goals of enabling successful implementation and innovative uses of technology by museum professionals.

Per Ron Aspe, Lucidea's CEO, "We are delighted to publish the fifth book in partnership with Ms. Woody, whose expertise in collections management systems and digital project management informs our clients and contributes to our own perspectives on CMS development."
