Presented by Dorothy Field, Alberta Culture, Historic Resources Management Branch

Alberta's Ministry of Culture has adapted The Museum System for a variety of "off label" applications, including a platform for gathering, storing, manipulating and sharing information relating to Alberta's built heritage. The Alberta Heritage Survey (AHS) consists of almost 100,000 records with textual and image data collected since the early 1970s. Data entry began in the 1980s, and in 2001 the AHS was migrated to TMS. Visuals have become a focus since 2006. In addition, an e-form allows for remote data entry, and a web interface permits the public to search the database. The session will describe and demonstrate the AHS system.
