Summary of the Article
Art collectors have historically managed their collections’ paperwork in a variety of ways – from manually updating spreadsheets to keeping related documents with the artworks themselves to filing them in different cabinets and offices; some may not keep track of this paperwork at all. Over the past 20 years, database systems have emerged for personal collections, acting as a single source of truth for private collectors that can be easily updated and keep copies of documents and other information safe from physical harm. Initially meant for galleries and museums, newer database management systems and products are now being used by artists and collectors alike, as a safer, more advanced way to manage their collection.
