Is work currently mounted/framed?

Is work currently mounted/framed?

Hi

This may be a little art gallery focussed, but given so many EMu users do collect artworks, perhaps someone has some ideas.

I'm looking for solutions on how to see if a work of art is currently mounted and/or framed, from the work of art catalogue record.

We can start from a Catalogue frame record, and query for the frame that is attached to a particular work record, and if the "Contains Artwork y/n" button is ticked. But users don't think that way. They want to look at a Catalogue record and see if the work is framed. I don;t think there is a reverse attachment field displayed in our client. Does anyone else have this?

I'm also keen to find out if anyone is managing locations effectively. If a work is in a frame, and the work moves, it seems quite cumbersome to have to manually update the frame record's location as well - especially if you can't see if the work is framed from the Work record.

If you are using EMu to manage mounts and frames, and think EMu meets your needs, please feel free to chimw in here or get in touch via privat emessage or email.

Thanks.
