San Diego Chinese Historical Museum

Log Number: IGSM-252932-OMS-23

The San Diego Chinese Historical Museum will improve storage conditions and documentation of approximately 2,000 objects from its paper and textiles collection. The project will address a lack of climate-controlled storage space and the need for improved collections data. Museum staff will work with a paid intern to accession, document, digitize, and properly rehouse objects composed of sensitive materials in climate-controlled storage facilities. Additionally, staff will host a public program for community members to view objects in person. As a result of the project, objects will be preserved in archival conditions and easily accessible for exhibition and museum programming.
