Lehigh University (Lehigh University Art Galleries)
Log Number: IGSM-245561-OMS-20
The Lehigh University Art Galleries will digitize and describe 1,700 photographs from the University's art collection, which includes works from Latin American and Caribbean artists. They will train staff and students to professionally photograph and/or scan the artworks and collect and assign standardized metadata to the digitized objects. From there, they will create a publicly accessible, searchable online database of the artworks, which will then in turn be discoverable through the University's library discovery layer and the museum's website. The project will make the collection more accessible to faculty, students, scholars, and the general public.
