Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

1. Substantially increase access to the Goldstein Museum of Design collection by developing innovative ways to use the digital images produced by the Institute for Museum and Library Services-funded collection digitization project. Surveys and questionnaires of visitors to online exhibitions.

Measurable Outcome(s)

Goldstein Museum of Design has substantially increased access to the collection through the launch of a searchable database incorporating over 15,000 digital images of 3,000 objects (10% of the collection) produced through an ongoing collection digitization project funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services. This access has resulted in a successful loan from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and increased comments by donors who can visit their donations and see that they are well-cared-for and respected. One donor stated: I was thrilled to so easily find beautiful photos of the clothing we donated on the website. IÆm so impressed that Goldstein is doing this digitization project. It puts donors back in touch with their donations, and allows others to access these beautiful things, too." Evaluation by users of this initial resource have informed revisions that will provide users with more initial information about the types of objects in the collection and recommend avenues of exploration based on these areas."
