Q&A has working characteristics appropriate for a relatively small database of under 8000 records.
For instance, exhibitions and study requests are often topical: portraits of women by Utamaro, or scenes of Edo (now Tokyo), or kabuki plays and actors. Second, it was essential to find a software program that met our design and access requirements.
At the Metropolitan Museum, a collection catalog database exists for the Robert Lehman Collection that has been in use since about 1989.
Q&A requires at least a 286 computer with minimum 40MB of memory for adequate space and speed in searching that size database.
The menu-driven program is easy to use, having on-screen prompting and help screens for all functions.
