Hosted offsite by EMSIX (contractor). Eventually will reside on a different outside server and be mirrored on a DIA server. Currently ordering a new server for this. M6 is developing a CMS for new site.
E-museum module - allows museums to publish their collections online to public. DIA not using this.
E-museum network module is related. Allows museums to access the collections of other museums; facilitates loans, research, etc. Paul setting up a server so DIA can participate in this.
Changes in TMS used to be upgrade to website (e.g. some images). Then Museum Systems came out with new version of TMS which changed table structures, so updates aren't happening anymore. Old developer (now gone) found a way to pull images from TMS & put them on DIA website. Developer has now left.
WIFI in the gallery space
Old parts of DIA made of marble - infrastructure not really there for wifi. In renovated areas WIFI can be installed.
Cellular reception in gallery space - Pretty good
