A planning project to improve storage and environmental conditions for a collection of more than one million archaeological artifacts from throughout the Pacific.

The Anthropology Department at the Bishop Museum will develop a Master Preservation Plan for the Archaeology Collections, which comprise an estimated 1.2 million artifacts and samples. This project will assemble a team of qualified professionals consisting of a conservator, a historic preservation specialist, a mechanical engineer, and collections and facility staff members.  The Master Preservation Plan builds on previous museum-wide conservation surveys and will focus on assessing the preservation needs and issues of the collections, environmental conditions, and collections spaces, and make recommendations to mitigate risks that are sustainable and specific to the varied collections, the museum, and Hawaii.  The plan will produce thoughtful and informed recommendations, implementation plans, and next steps guide both the short- and long-term stewardship and preservation of the collections, including plans for the consolidation of collections and HVAC ductwork.

The digitization of museum collections and museum staff knowledge through supporting 15 existing employees, and the hiring of a Digital Humanities Specialist to manage the project. 

Through Mau Ka Leo, Bishop Museum proposes to capture institutional and cultural knowledge held by staff so that the collective voice(s) of Bishop Museum can endure for future generations. This project supports the salaries of staff members across our cultural and huma collections as well as the hiring of a Digital Humanities Specialist, who will manage the project under the direction of the Museum’s Director of Informatics. Additionally, a Humanities Advisory Committee will be established to define the guiding principles for recording knowledge and to support the development of themes and content throughout the project. In tandem with the migration of Museum collections already digitized to the EMu platform, this knowledge will be documented through EMu’s Narratives module, allowing for multiple ways of knowing to be presented and for connections to be made across departments. This information will be made accessible to the public through CultureConnect, an online experience platform.
