Yale University (Peabody Museum of Natural History)

Log Number: MA-251634-OMS-22

The Peabody Museum of Natural History will curate and digitize its collection of histology slides representing the research of Joseph Eastman on Antarctic fishes. The museum will hire three undergraduate student assistants to aid staff in cleaning, scanning, and rehousing slides as well as cataloging and digital data migration. Additionally, museum staff will perform technical analysis on deteriorating mounting media to determine conservation treatment protocols. Staff will present their findings at conferences, and Joseph Eastman will lead a workshop on the collection for Yale students and present a public museum program. As a result of the project, the museum will make high resolution digital images available online for researchers and educators.
