Critical Curation Assistance for Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum

The hiring of an assistant curator to catalog archaeological and historic collections from the Four Corners region (the intersecting corners of Utah, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico).

The Edge of the Cedars State Park Museum requests funding to subsidize the position of an assistant curator. The assistant curator will aid the museum's curator in cataloging archaeological and historic period collections from the Four Corners region, particularly southeastern Utah. The assistant curator: will work directly with collections by describing individual or grouped items and inputting those data into an electronic catalog database; will house cataloged items in appropriate archival containers (supplied by museum); and will assist the curator in archiving (and databasing) associated documentation that accompanies the archaeological/historic collections. Most or all of these collections represent materials from ancestral Native American societies in the Mesa Verde/Bears Ears region of the Four Corners.
