Database Solutions

We specialize in developing custom database solutions for small businesses, museums, non-profit organizations and individual collectors of art.

Our expertise includes the development of multimedia archives, whereby complex narrative data can be linked to pictures, sound, Quicktime and other media or forms of documentation. We can setup multi-user, networked data systems and online SQL Server data solutions.

Databases can be developed for both Windows XX and Macintosh OS systems.

Databases for Small Businesses

We will custom design a database to best match existing business practices. Our service includes a comprehensive analysis of a client's existing administrative procedures and management principles; a database is then designed to best fit into these existing practices. We discuss with our clients the types of reports that will be most useful to them and the methods and resources needed for data entry.

We have developed order tracking, invoice generation and receivable tracking systems for small manufacturing, architect and printing-publishing firms.

Databases are developed for both Microsoft Office/Access and Claris FilemakerPro.

We developed with the Museum of Modern Art's Department of Education an interactive teaching guide on their exhibition MoMA 188- 1920. This project was developed using Macromedia Director and involved a V12 database engine that records user's responses to questions posed in the guide. (You can download this teaching guide - 6.7MB, sorry WindowsXX only; you will need WinZip)

We are currently developing with the Yale University Art Galley's Department of Education a resource archive for educators. This will be a database driven web site (using Active Server Pages and SQL server) that will allow educators to search for and select educational units that they can use in their classroom. Printable, customizable text-books delivered in PDF format will be an essential feature of this resource archive. YUAG's Ed. Dep. will be able to author the content in an Access database within their office and directly upload this material to the site; educators and Yale University students will also be able to contribute content directly on the web-site. (You can view a very preliminary version of this project)

Databases for Non-Profit Organizations

Studio In A School, an arts services organization that provides artist-educators to New York City public schools, needed a database to track the activities of its 7 programs taking place over 130 schools that involve over 140 teachers and artists. This system generates contracts with the individual schools, corresponding agreements with the artist-teachers, schedules actual teaching sessions, invoices the school, the Board of Ed. and other payers, tracks receivables and artist time-sheets etc. A large number of reports give the organization insight into these complex operations.
(Please also note the online Arts in Literacy Project currently in development with the Studio)

For the Foundation for Architecture in Philadelphia we created an extensive archive for the many tours they offer of the city. Guides can printout for their tour's detailed information sheets with images of the city tied to relevant facts. The public can browse the database for tours of special interest (It is planned to eventually offer this archive online).

Databases for Collectors


HUBAR works with individual collectors and registrars to inventory collections of art. Over 10,000 works of art have been photographed and digital images have been entered into databases customized to the collectors needs. Comprehensive catalogs can then be printed from these databases (see PDF sample - 280k), along with shipping, loan and transfer of ownership documentation. This is an excellent tool for managing a collection and maintaining ownwership and insurance records.

We are available to consult with collectors on the best method for cataloguing a collection.
