Purpose of the position:
A) Unlocking of the collection (UTC). The museum wishes to create a ‘Google searchable’, user friendly, online database of its collection. A record about each object in the museum’s collection is already stored in a custom built SQL-based collection management system (The Museum System or TMS). A responsive, mobile first, device neutral user interface has been designed and the fields in the user interface mapped to TMS. The Producer’s role will be to:
- Establish clear plans and timeframe for project implementation and outline specific activities. Monitor project progress and adjusts plans as required, seeing the project through to completion.
