Yesterday the ANA
had a new e-learning seminar covering this topic over zoom. It is the last seminar listed on this page titled: "Documenting Your Collection: Motives and Methods for Keeping Records of Your Collection"https://info.money.org/elearning-re...cd4aaf8f3e82
It should be available soon on their YouTube channel keep checking back it usually takes them 10-14 days to get it posted after editing. Instructor Tim Ferreira covered most of these software packages and rolling your own, reasons why we all need to do this and covered everything from record keeping using a plain old paper notebook to online cloud storage. It was basic but still good.
I myself roll my own as my collections are quite different than most. I collect primarily one series of coin ( Two Cent Pieces
) and have hundreds if not thousands of them that all need records kept showing very slight variations between each of them with photographs and accessible online or offline on mobile devices for use at coin shows. So I write my own Filemaker Pro databases, not ideal but works for me, others I know build with excel or Open Office, which is harder to learn, but much more flexible in the long run.
