WebinarFree Webinar: Sharing Collections Online
All museums, whether their focus is art, archaeology, archives, or history, stand to benefit from sharing collections online. Join us on Tuesday, January 16th at 2 pm Eastern for a free webinar discussing these benefits. We will review the basics of sharing your collections with PastPerfect Online - an easy, secure, and affordable way to share your collections - and the specific ways that public access will help your museum thrive.

Making collections publicly accessible will expand your audience and allow you to engage with your visitors in an entirely new way. Once your collections are online, you can:
  • Join regional and national communities to share your collections alongside other museums.
  • Review statistics to learn about what your visitors are interested in.
  • Set up Google Analytics to learn about who your visitors are and how they are finding you.
  • Share more items than ever before with almost unlimited space.
With PastPerfect Online as your tool for public access, you'll enjoy the benefits above, as well as unlimited access to our friendly and knowledgeable support staff.
