HBSMR Documentation

This website contains resources to support all users and system administrators of the Historic Buildings, Sites and Monuments Records (HBSMR) system from Exegesis SDM. It is organised into two main sections, a user guide describing how to operate the HBSMR application, and a system administration guide covering configuration of the system, advanced functionality, and management of reference data sets. The site also hosts discussion forums for registered users, and documentation from the HBSMR User Group.

HBSMR team availability

Exegesis Historic Environment / HBSMR consultants are predominantly working from home, and it's business as usual (almost) with a bit of extra flexibility around the hours we are working. As well as email and the phone numbers below, we can use Teams, Skype for Business, or Zoom, if that suits you. We find screen-sharing to address any support issues can be more effective than email or phone.

Christmas and New Year 2021

We will be checking emails occasionally, but have limited cover between 24th December and 4th January. If you need urgent assistance over this period, please do email or use the support form and indicated that your request is urgent in the subject line. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year everyone!
