CHNM to build database for National Museum of American Jewish History

CHNM has been awarded a contract build a custom collections management system for the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia. The new system will allow NMAJH researchers working at museums and historical societies around the nation to upload and organize images and information about collections of American Judaica via a web-based interface. NMAJH will use the system to create comprehensive database of artifacts from American Jewish history in preparation for a planned new permanent exhibition.
