Using CollectionSpace and Mukurtu to support and share NAGPRA-eligible collections
This webinar will feature OHC's work in cataloging and providing tribal access to NAGPRA-eligible collections. In 2018, OHC received a two-year grant to migrate NAGPRA catalog records, previously housed in a homegrown Access database, into CollectionSpace and to provide federally-recognized tribes with access to the records in order to facilitate consultation and repatriation efforts. OHC worked with LYRASIS to build out fields in order to support catalog records for human remains and associated funerary objects. They selected Mukurtu as the interface for sharing records, and worked with LYRASIS to map and build a report to export records from CSpace into Mukurtu. Jessi Weithman, the Museum and Library Catalog Manager at the Ohio History Connection (OHC) will share an overview of OHC's project.
Speaker: Jessi Weithman, Museum and Library Catalog Manager, Ohio History Connection
Date & Time: Sept 30, 2020, 1:00 - 2:30 PM EST
