Eddy Colloton, Denver Art Museum, Summer 2015, IMLS

Over the course of my 8-week internship at the Denver Art Museum (DAM), I assessed and cataloged born digital works from the museum collection. These works were then ingested into the museum’s digital repository. Through the combined effort of Registrars, Curatorial, Conservation and IT departments, the DAM was able to implement a controlled lexicon specific to born digital material, harness digital preservation tools like Archivematica, BitCurator, and Kryoflux, and ultimately allow for broader and streamlined use of the materials in the collection.
