Welcome to Kit-Catalogue
What is Kit-Catalogue?
Kit-Catalogue is an online system that can help any organisation effectively catalogue, record and locate their kit. This might be laboratory equipment, workshop machines, ICT and specialist tools - in fact any physical asset that requires descriptive information to be recorded, the item located and then used to its full potential. Kit-Catalogue can contain a wealth of information on each item including its; specification, custodian, location, handbook, access requirements, usage data and photos.
What is the Kit-Catalogue Project?
The project is currently funded by Loughborough University, and previously under the JISC's Greening ICT programme to produce the open source PHP/MySQL Kit-Catalogue system, based on the existing online laboratory equipment database, developed by the Centre for Engineering and Design Education at Loughborough University. The aim is to reduce the costly duplication and double purchasing of equipment within HE institutions and instead promote the reuse of equipment across the organisation. Furthermore, the system can be opened up to the public, allowing companies and other third parties to hire out equipment that might otherwise be lying idle.
