In 2019 we will be launching our Collections Online. This will ultimately mean that our community (local and global) will be able to search our collections and view information and images of the collection online.
The first part of this project will feature a bit of a test run of a sample from the photograph collection of the Waitaki District Archive. Then we aim to add the rest of the photograph collection and over time information and images from all collections including Museum objects and artwork in the Forrester Gallery collection.
There is a huge amount of behind the scenes work happening right now to get ready for the various stages of this project including updating our Vernon collection database nomenclature system and information, updating photographic images and photographing collection items.
