We are pleased to announce that the Peabody Museum is implementing an Open Access Initiative. This initiative strives to facilitate increased engagement with its digital collections in order to stimulate research and innovation, encourage collaboration, and promote transparency through ethical stewardship. For the Museum, this means:
- Providing increased access to collections information through additional content, including historical documentation, through the website’s Collections Online portal.
- Removing cost, access, and other barriers for users to obtain digital assets including high resolution images, documents, and data for educational, scholarly and personal use purposes.
- Delivering these resources in a user-friendly way by improving the Museum’s online platform and infrastructure.
