Cataloguing Unprocessed Museum Acquisitions for Public Access

The Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology stewards an extensive collection of material culture, folklore, and anthropological documentation. As a URAP Summer Fellow, I will be responsible for organizing and cataloguing previously undocumented accessions at the Hearst Museum’s off-site storage facility. More broadly, I hope to foster public accessibility through the production and circulation of research aids.
