Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Increase accessibility to collection through comprehensive documentation and digitization 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. 2: Align collection with communities of interest. TMA demonstrates improved utility in deploying collection resources. 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)

Art objects cataloged and databased as planned. More works discovered. Greater facilitation to researchers, curators, students, and visitors. Database growth improves curatorial effort. Audited for accuracy, and monitored for ease of use with ongoing training of new users, as compared to previous use, time saved in program development. Improved response time for research requests. 2: Marketing resulted in better audience targeting, positive visitor responses and longer stays; broadened interdisciplinary engagement. Collect social media response data, distribute audience surveys, conduct post mortem assessments, and interview stakeholders.
