What our customers say

Axiell has helped us develop an online collection that represents more than 80% of our holdings. This increased access to our collection has resulted in our Museum’s website being a top destination for researchers and publishers around the globe.

We are devoting a great deal of energy to data conversion projects and digitizing the collections, which we have made available in various places, including outside the museum. There are approximately 270,000 records searchable on the Museums’ website via Collections Online, and coming soon will be approximately 130,000 new records of old negatives which have been made available as part of a data conversion project, displaying a mixture of vessels, events, and wrecks. To the certain delight of researchers, we will be adding another 10,000 images.

As we’ve added more and more things to the catalogue it takes us a lot less time searching for documents. So, we can respond to researchers, respond to internal enquiries more quickly.
