Illuminating masterpieces : the Martin Museum of Art Collections Crowdsourcing Project.


The Martin Museum of Art Collections Crowdsourcing Project was designed to assist in researching and managing the museum’s permanent collection. With a small staff and obligatory demands of basic collections care, changing exhibitions, and administrative duties, research of the collection becomes less of a priority among the managing of the museum. The project adopted a blog site as a forum to post images of the collection each week for volunteers to present accurate and insightful information on the identifying information on the works of art to supplement and support the research of the collections staff.
