MMC students have many opportunities to complete real world, hands-on collections management projects. Through the PMA, our ‘Beat the Backlog’ project reduced the acquisitions backlog by labeling artifacts, completing skeletal catalogue entries, and finally entering the artifact’s information in the InMagic database.
- Coordination: various forms of artifact labeling
- Use of Procedures: following specific cataloguing guidelines based on the Canadian Heritage Information Network’s Data Documentation Standards
- Professionalism: our work is used in actual museums
