Cataloging 436 historic Mexican textiles and related artifacts from the Frances Bristol Collection and Archive, as well as rehousing related archival materials, digitizing 7,444 slides and 276 archival images, and creating a comprehensive finding aid for the collection as a whole.

Beloit College's Logan Museum of Anthropology seeks a Humanities Collections and Reference Resources Implementation grant in the amount of $99,948 from NEH to make the intellectual content of the Frances Bristol Collection and Archive widely accessible through cataloging, digitization, rehousing, and finding-aid creation. The Bristol Collection is an important scholarly and cultural resource that documents over four decades of craft production, ethnic and linguistic identity, cultural tourism, economic development, and community change in Oaxaca, Mexico and includes an associated archive of notes and images constituting 34 volumes and over 8,995 slides and photographs. Because the Bristol Collection is so well documented, it is extremely well positioned to be a unique resource for scholarship, education, and public programming.
