ACHF Arts Access
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.
