The Department currently uses the Interior Collection Management System (ICMS), a commercial off-the-shelf software system configured for bureau and office curatorial processes.
The ICMS User Manual is available for users from all DOI bureaus and offices and their partner repositories. DOI users may access the manual here. Other users may contact the Interior Museum Program and request a copy of the ICMS User Manual in PDF format.
The Museum Collection Management System (MCMS), the next-generation solution, is now in development. MCMS will be a cloud-hosted database system available to DOI and non-DOI users.
MCMS will provide the collections management data management tools of the current ICMS product, as well as new components and enhanced features.
DOI users may learn more on the MCMS Information Portal.
