Museum of the Aleutians Digitization Project

The retention of three staff, who would catalog at least 2,000 archaeological, ethnographic, and historic items; digitization and uploading of content; development of online exhibitions and educational programs; and the purchase of supplies.

The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of a digital presence for the Museum of the Aleutians. Our Museum houses important archaeological, ethnographic, and historic objects, photographs, paper archives, as well as some fine art. This project would allow the Museum to retain staff at pre-COVID-19 levels, to digitize and upload content onto the Alaska Digital Archives (VILDA), and to develop exciting new online exhibition and educational programs. Developing virtual content and an online database will enable us to share our mission with other Alaska museums, cultural centers, historical institutions, academic researchers, students, and the general public interested in the history and culture of the Aleutian Islands to a much greater extent than we currently offer.
