Which Configuration Profile to use for a simple toy collection?

edited October 2016 in Installation
Hi all!

I'm new to colleciveaccess. I want to catalog my toy cars collection to give other collecters access to it. I want to upload some pictures of each car, and provide the following attributes:

-Dimensions (lenght, hight, widht, weight)
- Manufacturer and manufacturing year
- Numer of doors and if the doors can be opened
- color (upper side and lower side)
- type of car (e.g. station wagen, coupé, truck, and so on)
- condition (new, original packagin, used, worn, and so on)
- type of material used (plastic, metal and so on)
- pattern (e.g. stripes, airbrushings)
- purchase information (store, date, price)
- Sold information (date, price, to whom)
- Storage Location (Building, Room, Box)

Does there exist any default profile for "collectibles"?




  • Hi Jay, sounds cool! We don't have a default profile for "collectibles" but your metadata is so limited you can probably just start with a simple profile, like Dublin Core or our "Default" visual resources profile, and change it to meet your needs.
  • Hi Julia, sorry for my late answer - i didn't had time last couple of month to make progress to my collection. Now i just updated to version 1.7.6 and I will continue by entring my collectibles
