Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Increase accessibility to collection through comprehensive documentation, digitization and learning of collection to improve and expand means of access. A designated number of artworks will be required to be cataloged, and the database audited for accuracy and tested by users for utility. Assessments will be conducted to monitor progress. 2: Align collection with communities of interest. TMA demonstrates improved utility in deploying collection resources for exhibitions, publications, loans, collaborations and research. Access time, satisfaction of researchers, teachers’ use of curricular tools, and audience responses to programs will be assessed by interviews and surveys based on established user criteria.

Measurable Outcome(s)

1950 artworks were assessed: for acquisition, condition, data logged, photographed and stored. Main vault upgraded requiring temporary (1500) object relocation. Currently resituating artworks. Process: regular cataloging, monitoring/oversight by registrar, followed by data audits. Art-handling, due to vault renovation, supported by contracted tech service facilitated by registrar and preparator. Original inventory used as control set. Visitor, scholar, faculty/student service requests and access addressed according to client needs. Curriculum and loan related requests fulfilled according to user need. Currently planning 3-5 yr object-learning program. Emphasis on Native art.
