Science Museum Group

Digital preservation and asset management

The Science Museum Group is devoted to the history and contemporary practice of science, medicine, technology, industry and media, with the most comprehensive and significant collections anywhere in the world.

In the beginning... The National Museum of Photography, Film and Television* - as it was known at the time - was the very first user of an iBase system in 1995, followed by the Science Museum in London, the Railway Museum in York, and other sites which came together as the Science Museum Group.

*Now the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford.

As technology improved, digital management and preservation systems were combined to operate as an integrated whole across the entire Science Museum Group.

Work continues to further rationalise the systems architecture and make the best use of the latest technologies and techniques to maintain a mass digitisation pipeline system.

iBase also supports Active Directory authentication, which allows users to login using their existing credentials, and Science Museum Group system administrators to control who has access to what using their standard network administration tools.

The locally hosted iBase DAM system provides for the storage, searching and internal distribution of Liberty's extensive archive of digital assets.
