MUSEUM INFORMATION SYSTEM – DESIGN METHODOLOGY, IMPLEMENTATION AND PERSPECTIVES
Abstract. Approved methodologies used to develop complex information systems and supported by available new generation software packages and tools, have given us the opportunity to create the basis of the Museum Information System (MIS). Starting from a strategic study of MISS, we have developed two information subsystems: the Central Register and the Photo Documentation Subsystem. This paper presents applied methodologies, a review of the implemented subsystems and further perspectives. In addition, and having in mind that the national cultural heritage is unique, we propose ways to integrate and link together information about different kinds of cultural heritage.
Key words: Museum Information System, application software, information system modelling.
