Digging Digital Museum Collections

The AAI launched the Digging Digital Museum Collections Project in November 2020. The aim of the program is to better leverage digitized museum collections and related digital resources for public engagement, instruction, and lifelong learning. In addition, this program will explore training and consulting services for partner institutions to make better public engagement uses of their digitized collections and data. The program is run by Dr. Pinar Durgun, who joined the AAI in November 2020 as Curator for Digital Collections Interpretation and Public Engagement. This program will work in conjunction with both the Data Literacy Program and the AAI’s sustainability work. This program is supported by individual donations and by the AAI’s National Endowment for the Humanities Infrastructure and Capacity-Building Challenge Grant.
