dc.description.abstractThroughout the summer and fall of 2016, I worked on a project for the Mayborn Museum Complex in Waco, Texas. For 6 months, I worked to archive the Mayborn’s digital born photographs. These images were taken at events, during renovations, and in the general running of the museum. My task was to find a place to store these images and make them accessible to the Mayborn staff. The first 3 months of this project involved uploading over 19,000 photographs and organizing them appropriately. To finish the project I needed to tag each image with applicable search terms and create a procedural manual, so the work I had been doing could continue. From start to finish I processed over 19,000 photographs and met with my project supervisor weekly to tag and identify images. Concluding this project, I have gained experience in archival standards for born digital files and the measures needed to ensure accessibility.en_US
