American Museum of Natural History
Log Number: MA-245234-OMS-20
The American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) will increase access to its Vertebrate Paleontology Archive by creating online catalog records for the collection of photographs, correspondence, and field notes. More than half of the archive is currently unprocessed, and none of it is available to search online. A project archivist and interns will be hired to work with AMNH staff to create online catalog records and finding aids. Researchers from a variety of disciplines will be able to directly access records describing the contents of the archive, broadening its use and bringing in new users, including K-12 teachers and students who will able to discover material through general web searches.
