Conservation inventory software

Software for Conservation, written using MS Access

My wife Els Jacobs, professional restoration and conservation specialist
working for the Conservation Department of the Flemish Community in
Belgium, and I, working as a software engineer, have written a program
in Microsoft Access to maintain records for Conservation and Restoration
projects. The program is used by the Conservation Department of the
Flemish Community to manage all records for mural painting and
polychromy conservation projects. We want to share this program with
other people as well.

The program is entirely menu-driven, easy-to-use and requires no special
skills besides knowing how to work with MS Windows. The current version
is Dutch, but if there is enough interest an English version can be made

The database is structured relational and can contain specifications
about the art work, the different techniques used during the restoration
or conservation, the products used, description of the art work,
pointers to a photo archive, suggestions for further treatments,
publications about the work, history of the object itself etc.

The same program can be used to maintain a list of product
specifications and product vendors. From the program, extensive
high-quality reports can be made.

The program requires the installation of Microsoft Access on the
computer (not included with our software), unless we find the funding to
acquire ourselves a MS Access Developers Kit which will allow us to
distribute the application to people not having MS Access on their
computers. Anyone interested in having a copy or who wants to fund the
further development by donating an MS Access 2.0 Developers kit can
contact us in writing or via email.
