Registration Work at the Hearst Museum of Anthropology

I will be working with the Head of Registration (Linda Waterfield) at the Hearst Museum of Anthropology. Under her guidance, I will review unprocessed collections and record the material into the museum database, CollectionSpace (CSpace). From there, I will scan source documents and related media into the CSpace file so that it is coherent for researchers to navigate easily. When necessary, I will create finding aids for these collections so that researchers have easy access to them. The finding aids will include information on what is available in the collection, where to access them, et cetera and will be put up on the Museum website.

Message to Sponsor

Thank you so much for this wondrous opportunity! Ever since a young age, I have been incredibly interested in museum processes and the ability to obtain and access visual cultures. I greatly appreciate you giving me the opportunity to explore my life dream - of hopefully one day curating a museum. This is one step closer to being able to do so!
