Abstract

This capstone project consists of a project management plan to streamline the National Museum of Mexican Art's (NMMA) digitization process in order to publish the permanent collection online. The goals of digitizing the collection are increased access, audience expansion, education, and preservation. The target audiences are Mexican art and culture enthusiasts, researchers, students, collectors, potential donors, fellow museums (for potential loans), and the global general public. This plan seeks to incorporate three processes to the NMMA 's digitization procedure: standardize the digitization process, digitize the objects in the museum's pennanent collection, and publish the digitized collection on the museum's website. It is based off of my internship at the NMMA over the summer of2014, correspondence with NMMA staff, and outside research.
