The RGM data bank programme for storage and retrieval of geological collection data
The structure of the RGM registration system is discussed, with special attention to the costs for running this data bank, and for adding new information to it. The programme produces printed catalogues that offer a wide variety of entries into the collection. It is estimated that the entire registered collection of the museum can be transferred to the new system in about five years. Co-operation with other institutions may lead to a national data bank for geological collections.
