The State Historical Society of North Dakota Foundation (SHSNDF) is excited to announce a new partnership with Re:Discovery Software Inc (RSI) and their cloud solution to store data safely and securely. Our goal is to provide Cultural Heritage Institutions within North Dakota an affordable data storage plan. We are confident that our collaboration with RSI will allow us to utilize the latest data storage technology and provide reliable, secure, and cost-effective solutions for managing and consolidating data.

Terms of Service

The RSI Proficio adapts to institutional workflows, manages physical and digital assets, easily searches across museums, archives, libraries and archaeology collections, generates reports and can be shared on the Web or kept private for internal use only. Proficio’s user interface and features make the job of managing and accessing collection records more streamlined and enjoyable.


RSI Proficio is a comprehensive collections management database application for museums, archives and manuscript repositories, reference libraries, and archaeological sites. RSI Proficio allows institutions to fully document current and historical information about individual items in their collections.

Collections are individual storage units used to catalog and manage a database that allows researchers to track, manage, and research collection items. Collections may include objects, artifacts, documents, photographs, records, audio-visual materials, books, manuscripts, and other media.

Objects/Records are individual items held in a museum's collection, such as artifacts, documents, photographs, and audio-visual materials. Objects/Records will contain information about the item, such as its title, date, description, and any associated documentation. It may also include information about the source and acquisition of the item, its storage location, and its condition.

Cultural Heritage Institutions are organizations dedicated to preserving, protecting, and interpreting cultural heritage materials and resources. They include museums, libraries, archives, heritage centers, cultural centers, historical societies, and other organizations that acquire, care for, and make available materials and resources to the public.


  • The cost of purchasing one storage unit, referred to as ‘Collections’, is $100.

    • An allotment of 50,000 Objects/Records are included within a ‘Collections’ purchase. Storage can be increased if needed by purchasing another Collections unit.
