Electronic Cataloging Project Entry #44

April 23, 2012

Previous to this project, if someone wanted to learn about a work in our collection they needed to look in many different places. First stop would be the Object file—with information about acquisition into the collection and other basics. Additionally there are Condition/Conservation files, Exhibition files, Outgoing Loan files, Vertical files (in the library), as well as, separate locations for appraisals and provenance research. Now with our new database, all the different types of information (with media!) are captured in one location.
