bound book websites & archives

Catalogue your archive, library or art collection.


An opportunity to audit, display and promote your artefacts or photographs.


Content management

You could consider a full content management system (cms), which allows you (or someone in your office) to create new catalogue sections, alter or add text, upload images and change navigation. The CMS gives you a web-based interface of boxes and clickable radio buttons to make the changes. The archive records can then be made accessible to visitors of your choosing.

Preparing your collection

If your collection isn't "ready-to-go" yet, Bound Book can assess and catalogue the collection in-house. If it's very extensive or specialist, we can project manage working with professionals in conservation, photography, collections management, curation and design history, who can help you ready it for cataloguing.

We will also work with you to develop your search and categorisation functions, so that the database can then be used in a multitude of different applications from academic research to print production.
