Preservation plays a very important role in extending the life of museum artifacts. Preservation methods include housing items in climate controlled environments; protecting them from devastating degradation due to insects, light, and changes in humidity. If not on exhibit, artifacts, archives, and specimens are more often than not taken out of the public eye. The technology of digital imaging has enabled museums to give public access to their repositories while reducing the materials' exposure to degrading elements.
On this page you are provided access to the digital museum collections. Check back on a regular basis for additions to these digital collections.
