Museum Informatics

The Informatics Services unit works with faculty, museum, academic and research communities to identify, develop and deliver cyberinfrastructure and informatics solutions to the campus. The goals of this unit are directly linked to the education, research and outreach missions of the university. Informatics Services is particularly concerned with: collection management systems; digital asset management and repositories; controlled vocabularies; semantic services; data exchange, integration and dissemination; and interfaces with services that provide other functionality, such as geospatial services and visualization.

Developers and data management professionals in Research IT help the broader collections informatics community, both at UC Berkeley and beyond, by participating in projects and initiatives, particularly in the biodiversity and cultural heritage domains.
