Ashmolean Collections

  • Evgenia Spinaki

The Ashmolean, the University of Oxford’s museum of art and archaeology, has embarked on a major project to digitise its vast collections, comprising over a million objects spanning 10,000 years. Keepthinking has designed and developed the Ashmolean Collections website to support the digitisation project, with the Qi CMS used for collections management as well as website content management. The website is fully responsive with a strong focus on searching, bringing together (for the very first time) material from across the museums’ curatorial departments. The wealth of objects and time periods called for creative ways of making searches easier.
