University of Alaska, Fairbanks (Fairbanks, AK 99775-7500)
Angela Linn (Project Director: April 2020 to August 2021)
Maintaining Preservation & Access for the UA Museum of the North Cultural Collections

Retention of staff members who would digitize accession records and supplement existing online collection records with further information and relevant cross-references, thereby enhancing virtual accessibility for students, researchers, and the public.

Through the NEH CARES Act funding, the UA Museum of the North (UAMN) seeks to retain four senior humanities employees whose positions are at-risk of furlough due to COVID-19 closure of the museum. This project will enable staff to enhance the preservation of and access to over one million objects important to the cultural heritage of Alaska and the Circumpolar North. Through the strengthening of collections records and the improved accessibility of accession data and physical items, we will continue to serve our diverse community of users that include academic researchers, public history practitioners, museum professionals, members of the general public, and Indigenous source communities.
