Modeling loans in the spectrum profile
I'm getting ready to set up some digital support for keeping track of the collection of a museum in its early days. We currently have about 70 works under our wings, partly our own, partly (long- and short term) loans.
Since the spectrum standard seems to be widely used here (we're in the Netherlands), it seems to make sense to start with the spectrum profile. However, I'm a bit confused how loans are modeled: I noticed there are 'loan in'/'loan out' screens 'under' the object editor, but loans are also 'top-level' objects as part of the generic data model. How is that supposed to be used? Should I ignore the 'top-level' loan objects when using spectrum, and use the loan screens 'under' the object editor instead? Those screens seem to be geared towards a single loan though - how would I model one work being loaned twice? Or am I misunderstanding things entirely?
