This new tool offers an online “Collection Management System” for art
collectors, artists, galleries, archivists and museums. You can start
with a simple list of items and gradually expand to add all the data
pertinent to a collection. This can include images, videos, documents,
provenances, email correspondence, exhibitions, loans and
restoration history as well as tracking of limited editions.
Everything is stored within the FineArtFacts relational database on a
dedicated web server. All access is via a web browser over the
internet. No special computer resources are needed.
To use FineArtFacts, you become a “Subscriber”. An account is
created for you and your collaborators and you have exclusive
access to your private area of the system.
Subscribers log in at www.fineartfacts.com. All data entry, retrieval,
browsing, searching and media uploading are performed from a
standard web browser interface.
A public gallery is set up for each Subscriber where the public can
be given access to parts of your collection. Information or media that
you designate as “Public” then becomes available in this public
gallery. Since all the information is recorded in a database, and
since all the web-pages are generated dynamically, any changes
you make take effect immediately on the public site.

Subscribers can designate portions of their data for 'open' access. These 'open' access portions are made available for the general public to view on our public-facing-site.
