The project to digitize the Museum's photography collections began in 2008 and was originally set in motion by Julia Van Haaften, then the Museum's Director of Collections, who spearheaded a number of important projects to bring excellence to the organization and management of the Museums collections. During the implementation of this effort, Amy DiPasquale served as the Project Manager, working alongside Lacy Schutz who assumed responsibility for the project when she became Director of Collections Access in 2009.
A small but very dedicated band of catalogers, photographers, programmers, and curators is responsible for getting almost 100,000 images uploaded to the Collections Portal. We congratulate and thank them all.
We are particularly grateful to Karl Fakhreddine and his colleagues at Orange Logic for building an extraordinary digital asset management system to power the entire Collections Portal -- a key component in enabling us to bring these wonderful images to the public. And we thank Analogous for the beautiful design.
