Presented by Sarah Cartwright, Curatorial Research Fellow

One of the core missions of any museum is to collect, preserve, study, interpret and display works of art. A key responsibility that supports these activities is the object file.  Did you know each object in the collection has a corresponding file?  As mundane as it may sound, this endeavor is the building block of all research for both Museum staff and scholars.  Learn what goes into these files, how they are used,  and who uses them.
