Search RAMM's collections online
22 June 2011
Wherever you are in the world you can now find out about and comment on objects from RAMM’s collections via our new online database.
Over 5,000 records are on the database including much loved specimens such as Gerald the giraffe and less well known gems from the stores. Each record tells you some interesting facts and most have images.
Searches, tags and comments
You can search for objects and specimens in different ways but it’s best to use the simple search to dip into the collections or browse the whole database. You can also leave comments and tag objects with your own keywords. Dozens of objects have already have tags, comments and audio files from people who took part in RAMM’s Moving Here project which worked with people from around the country and across the world. These can easily be found using the Moving Here tag.
