Re: Database for Natural History collection


Thanks Brandy.

My hunch is that we’ll go with Specify, but they’re not sure if it can run on a cloud based platform.

We’re a small, underfunded collection at a small public university, on the campus of a large private university, which means that we have very little control of what we can do with IT. I’d like to be able to have multiple people access our database from work or home and I don’t like the idea of running it on a machine that isn’t reliably backed up.

I’ve heard great things about EMu, but I’ve also heard that they’re very pricey. Thanks for the heads up on Symbiota.
