Institutional/Project Collections

Institutional and Project Collections are those collections associated with a larger Institution but vary based on how they are managed. Institutional Collections are those collections that have been formally accessioned into the Institution and receive some level of institutional support. Project Collections are those that were collected by a researcher associated with an institution but have not been formally accessioned into the institution's collections. Project Collections may eventually become part of the Institutional Collections or remain under the management and control of the individual researchers.

To CREATE a new collection, press the Create a Record button to the right.
