Digital Object Studies

Digital Object Studies allow you to use objects from our collections for coursework. These primary source materials can prompt writing assignments, enhance lessons, or inspire discussion.

Each item selected for Digital Object Study comes with:

  • Multiple still images that include all angels and detail shots.
  • A short, silent video.
  • A full information sheet about the object.

These files are ONLY accessible with permission from the museum.

Contact the Curator of Academic Programs, Katy Malone.

Note that there is no narration or sound with object videos.

Digital Object Study materials are designed to be as flexible as possible. A single object can be used to tell a myriad of stories or to prompt many conversations! We can schedule a discussion or lecture to go with the images and video to match your teaching goals. They can also serve as raw material should you want to discuss the item yourself, or to allow students to explore and analyze an object on their own.
