Are there limitations to the size and type of files I can upload?
Good question! The simplest answer is - any and all file types and sizes!
Our project partner, Museums Victoria, has generously opened up their server space to users of Victorian Collections. What that means is that anything you upload to the CMS is automatically saved and backed-up alongside MVs collection records (that's more than 17 million items)! You're in good hands.
