Reply To: Archaeology Collections Cataloging Software


Mimsy also allows for duplication and multiple alpha-numeric numbering. It is also a relational database that allows you to create site and excavator records that can then be linked to the artefact records. I found the customizable nature of Mimsy a big plus when developing a system of cataloguing the 20 archaeological sites (40,000+ artefacts).

I’ve tried using PP for catalogiung archaeological records in the past and I agree with you, it isn’t very receptive to large lot.

If you don’t have alot of money to spend on this database you may be better off looking to an Access or Excel format for now, as these are general very easy to migrate into more robust databases when needed.
