The new system, Proficio, is a catalog database with sophisticated searching capabilities used by many institutions, including the National Park Service. The platform allows users to search holdings by name, culture, artist and topic, among other things, all in one space and view associated digital resources, such as video, photographs and online exhibits.
One of the best things about the new platform is that it makes hundreds of previously unavailable archival and object records accessible and searchable by patrons around the world, said SHI President Rosita Worl: https://www.sealaskaheritage.org/node/1192
