Sesam is the Collection Management System of the Senckenberg Museum. SeSam was developed together with com2 (Bad Homburg). All collections (both zoological and botanical) of the Senckenberg Research Institute are going to use this efficient tool. more

SeSam provides the following opportunities: Objects can have an aquatic, terrestrial, recent or fossil origin. All collections are stores in a central database and use a joint data-pool for systematics, geographical data, persons and literature. This enables homogenous capturing of data. Collection spanning searches are possible. Input of new collections is quick and easy. To add collection-specific fields and modulate the general templates is possible without programming knowledge. SeSam is web-based.
