The Collections Research Enhancement Project
In support of the Partnership of Peoples Project, the Museum of Anthropology is undertaking a significant
initiative to improve both the physical and virtual access to the Museum's collections. In addition to managing the move of
the museum's collections during the construction and renovation project, staff within the Collections Research Enhancement
Project (CREP) will undertake a variety of initiatives to facilitate distance research including digitizing the collections
as well as conducting an intensive survey to enhance the level of information available in the museum's collections database.
Physical access to the collections for researchers and community members will be improved through the development of
specialized object supports and mounts. The Collections Research Enhancement project involves four streams of activity:
survey, mounting, digitization, and move.
