Public Collections

What are Public Collections ?

On each Collectish item page, we show links to some items held by public collecting institutions around the world, which we think may be of interest to you.

We search these collections using tags that have been attached to the Collectish item that you are viewing at the time. We do this so that we can link to things that are similar or related to the Collectish item in some way.

Sometimes you'll see links to things which have no obvious relevance. It depends how the Collectish item has been tagged, and on how the public item has been described by its owners. But hopefully the links are interesting to you anyway.

What's with the Goggle logo?

We're using Google to search specific Collection websites and bring back public collection search results. Google require us us to display their logo to meet their conditions of use.
