Integrated Collections Management and Transaction Solution (ICMTS)

Royal Botanic Gardens Kew holds a vast and growing collection of plant and fungal data and databases that store information on specimens, names, taxonomy, traits, distributions, phylogenies, phenology and conservation. These include digital taxonomic and trait-based resources and collection databases and images. These resources link to all our collections and provide the basis for their integration. The collection databases are curated alongside the physical collection. A key challenge to our collections is the integration of currently disparate systems, to facilitate more efficient curation and management. To improve digital access and management of our collections, we aim to improve the integration and data quality of our collection databases, plant and fungal name databases and other relevant data sources. This will provide efficiencies in cataloguing the collections, ensure easier tracking of movements between collections, and support increased digital access to collection data.
