Princeton University Art Museum’s Asian art collections to be made more accessible to scholars and the public

“The Asian art collections at the Princeton University Art Museum will be highlighted for search and discovery thanks to a $150,000 Museums for America grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). This IMLS grant will support the Museum’s ongoing Collections Discovery Initiative and is designed to ensure that Princeton’s Asian art collections – widely considered among the premier collections of Asian art in the United States – can be shared with the broadest possible audiences, especially with scholars and researchers. The grant will allow the Museum to enhance and standardize the cataloging of its Asian art holdings, develop rich educational materials and restructure its award-winning Asian art microsite into an in-depth sustainable resource with an innovative new interface.” (via Art Daily)
