Linked Data-powered Collections Management System for archives, libraries, museums, and individuals
Flexible data entry
Paradicms doesn't force you to use a built-in editor. It extracts and transforms data from a variety of formats -- including Airtable, Excel, Google Sheets, Markdown, and Omeka -- into a Linked Data representation.
No local installation, no self-hosting
Paradicms adheres to the principles of minimal computing. You don't need to install any software on your machine in order to use Paradicms, but can use it in conjunction with free cloud services such as Google Sheets and GitHub.
Multiple user interfaces
Linked Data native
Paradicms represents collection data using RDF graphs and standard vocabularies such as Dublin Core, VRA Core, and OWL Time.
Paradicms is free to use and extend. Its source code is available on GitHub under the GPLv3 license. Paradicms is built using modern open source technologies, including Docker, React.js, Next.js, TypeScript, and typed Python.
Your data, your way
With Paradicms, you control your own collection data. You are free to share your collection on the public web, or host a website on internal servers. There is no central server, advertising, or behind-the-scenes data sharing.
