Registration Inventory Volunteers at the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology

This summer, the Registration team at the Museum is inventorying and photographing an estimated 10,000 textiles and 12,000 baskets.  Since June 2014, four volunteers and three interns have lent their talents and time (over 300 hours!) to the Museum with the systematic inventory and photography of the collections. Collectively, the team has inventoried over 17,500 artifacts and taken 4,500 photographs.

Conservation on the Move

The move conservation staff works to ensure that objects make it through the relocation process safely, and that move-related activities align with the goal of long-term preservation of the collections.
