    The Collections Specialist is a key member of the SHM curatorial and registration staff, responsible for completing the work as described in Appendix 1 (Minnesota Historical Society Large Grant, awarded fall of 2022).  The Specialist supports the work of the SHM Curator and Registrar for three-dimensional collections.

    The purpose of this project is twofold. First, the Stearns History Museum needs to review and evaluate all objects accessioned since the 2015 Collections Inventory Project.

    Secondly, the project will allow the Stearns History Museum to clean-up collections software records (Collector Systems) of erroneous and incomplete information, standardize control language for searching (example: World War II, WW II, WW 2, World War 2), and begin to provide professional grade photographs of three-dimensional collections for future online accessibility.

    The evaluation portion of the project will examine every artifact accessioned since 2015 and cross check the artifact against information contained in the museum’s collections management software (Collector Systems).
