CollectionSpace Reporting

Reporting on collection data managed with CollectionSpace is complicated by the variation of data models and collection types used by diverse museums and collections that employ the software. Flexible modes of generating reports -- from use of the built-in JasperReports reporting tool or extension points in the codebase, to development of web applications that address the CollectionSpace API or database -- allow users to address this complexity in ways that best suit their collection and institutional workflow.
