Smith College Museum of Art receives IMLS digital archive grant

Smith College Museum of Art (SCMA) has been awarded a two-year grant from the Museums for America Program of the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the primary source of federal support for libraries and museums. The grant will be used to complete a comprehensive image archive of objects in the Museum’s permanent collection.

SCMA will digitize approximately 3,860 objects. The complete archive of images will be uploaded to the Smith College Imaging Center’s LUNA Insight database for use by Five College faculty and students, and to the ARTstor Digital Library for use by scholars at subscribing institutions. Images without copyright restrictions will be made available to the general public via the Five College collections database. read full article
