Digital Imaging of the Collection

Through the use of a sophisticated digital camera, images of the entire East Asian collection will be available in the Museum’s internal database. Digital access to the collection will not only allow scholars and curators to identify and study the works of art, but will also meet the Museum’s goals to minimize risk of damage from unnecessary handling.
