Database development is underway

Our Graduate Research Associate, Tamryn McDermott, is developing a comprehensive and searchable database for our Kawsay Ukhunchay research collection. Tamryn has been photographing the objects, assembling information, and cataloging objects, books, music, and instruments. The database is being built using Airtable, one of the database systems used at The Ohio State University.

Below is a snapshot of what the database looks like. Each record can be clicked on to find more information on each object. This system allows us to save multiple images of each object, additional documents relating to the object, and add searchable key words and geographic locations. Our student research is being integrated into the database. Students will also have access to the database as a resource for future work with the collection.

 

Below are some examples of the photographs:
