The second phase of a project to catalog, digitize, and mount on the Internet 25,000 photographic images from the Peabody Museum Photographic Archives that document archaeological and ethnographic objects and major expeditions, dating from 1866 to the 1930s.

The project aims to increase intellectual access to the Peabody Museum's historical photographs by linking digitized images to a searchable database available to both a broad online audience and specialized audiences. In April, 2009, the Peabody Museum completed a multi-year (2006-2009) NEH Preservation and Access grant that allowed for the digitization, cataloging and uploading to the web of more than 30,000 images from the Peabody Museum's core negative collection. This project marks the end of the first phase of scanning the Peabody's remarkable photo archive (known as Phase 1). This proposal seeks funding to scan the remaining core negatives (hereafter referred to as Phase 2), furthering the Peabody's long-term goal to preserve and make accessible its entire photo archive. This project will follow the practices and procedures established in Phase 1 including re-housing, digitizing, and mounting the images online.
