Uncovering Fabergé: An Archival Digitization Planning and Pilot Project

A planning project for digitizing the museum’s archives relating to its Fabergé and Russian decorative arts collection. The project would result in technical requirements and workflow for linking archival and object catalog records as part of a larger digital initiative at the museum; digitization and linking of approximately 500 archival documents with about 500 already imaged objects; and dissemination of the materials via the museum’s publicly accessible website.

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA)seeks the support of the National Endowment for the Humanities Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Foundations program in the amount of $40,000 to develop a comprehensive plan to digitize and disseminate the archival materials related to some of our most significant holdings. The Foundations project will use the Lillian Thomas Pratt Collection of Faberge and Russian Decorative Arts objects for the pilot of its digital archive plan to test methods for a larger plan to digitize VMFA's archival collections. This initiative will provide a methodology for making VMFA's archival collections accessible to researchers and humanities scholars through the museum's website and other digital platforms.
