Northwestern Michigan College (Dennos Museum Center)

Log Number: IGSM-251373-OMS-22

The Dennos Museum Center on the campus of Northwestern Michigan College will improve the care of its collection through rehousing and inventory updates. Informed by a recent Museum Assessment Program (MAP) report, the museum will purchase and install five compact shelving units and reorganize their storage space to optimize collections care for approximately 165 objects from Michigan and the Midwest. Museum staff will create new archival boxes and mounts as needed and update inventory records. The project will enhance curatorial ease of access for research, teaching, and exhibition purposes, while providing expansion space for future collections, rehousing, and other collections management functions. Additionally, the museum will share project updates and results on social media and in the college newspaper.
