Check out this cool new acquisition we got in yesterday! #CoolCollections #MuseumWork #PublicCallBox #AvonCologne
This summer our #Invertebrate #Zoology staff travelled to the rural property of Tyler Cobb (RAM Head of Life Sciences) to collect a Carpenter ant Camponotus sp. colony from a fallen tree. Using a chainsaw, insect vacuum, keen eyes and dozens of vials they managed to capture several hundred ants. More importantly, despite liberal use of a chainsaw, the queen was also captured unharmed. Quite a feat considering that there are thousands of ants in a colony this size.
The colony was transported safely back to the RAM where it now is thriving in captivity. Future visitors to the new downtown RAM will be treated to seeing this colony on display in the new Bug Room when we open in 2018. #YEG #Yegdt #Alberta #MuseumWork #BTS

The thing I like most about my work is being alone in the museum rooms before opening hours. I sometimes discover gems like this portrait of Li Shizhen, a Chinese herbalist in the 16th century. .....................

#Digitalisierung #Museum 
Manche Kollegen von uns arbeiten im Dunkeln... sie digitalisieren im Moment Werke aus unserem Kupferstichkabinett. Genauer gesagt fotografieren sie die Wasserzeichen ab, die mit dem bloßen Auge nicht zu sehen sind.
Die niederländischen Zeichnungen wurden erst aufwendig restauriert, nun digitalisiert und 2018 werden sie ausgestellt!

Some of our colleagues work in the dark. They are taking pictures of he water signs, hidden within the paper.
In total they are currently digitalizing more than 900 Dutch prints and drawings. The artworks were recently restored. They will be exhibited 2018.

The most important part in collection management : Numbering each acquisition to keep tracks ! This way, we know what we have and where it is. Slowly process though. 
Don't be shy to come in and ask about our work. :) #stvital #stvitalmuseum #stvitalhistoricalsociety #museum #museumwork #viedetech #museumtechnician #catalog #artifact #collectionmanagement
Members of our children's learning team recently visited the Vanderwell mill in #SlaveLake, #Alberta to find the best "tree cookies" for the new museum's learning programs and various exhibits. Tree cookies are cross sections of tree trunks that can be used to study the growth of a tree. As trees grow, they add growth rings every year, which can be seen as a layer of light and dark wood. #RoyalAlbertaMuseum #Opening2018 #Yeg #yegdt #MuseumWork

This week is all about posters. I'm trying to assess how much it would cost in hours and material to move and catalogue 12.000 posters. A lot of them are not in amazing condition, like this Russian one, which has been fixed with tape (bad!) and the paper is fragile with frayed edges. The biggest concern is the storage though, as each box has an average of 100 (!!) posters inside, with no buffer paper in between. The boxes themselves are made from acidic cardboard - what a joy! 😫

Stitched onto the verso of the central panel of the dress is a layer of material which finishes along the hemline of the train. This is the material that acted as a stain barrier of sorts. Where it has been stitched on you can see it has created a slight distortion on the outer fabric. The close ups are of  the interior of the dress panel where the stitching is #preventiveconservation#museumwork#museum#countymuseum#costume#textileconservation#detail#closeup#photography #fabric #dissertation #conditionreport#dress#1930s

There are two small weights which have been hand-stitched onto the front of the dress just below the neckline. They are encased in specially made pouches. I cannot see exactly what the weight is but from the feel of them they appear to be coins. One of them is displaying physical damage, as you can see from the close up the threads are loose. #preventiveconservation #museumwork #textileconservation#detail #1930s#weddingdress#dressweights#fabric#costume #dresshistory#fashion

Maybe a little early in the morning for this, but these images show the chemical damage that perspiration can cause to fabric over time. The slightly yellow tint along the stitching and fabric has been caused by a chemical deterioration over time. #preventiveconservation #museumconservation #textileconservators #textile #conditionreport #fashionhistory #fabric#detail #dress#countymuseum#museumwork#deodorant
Images showing the chemical damage on the interior lower section of the train. The inner layer of fabric has acted as a barrier and absorbed most of the staining. The damage is mainly centred on the section of the train that would have been in contact with the ground. Liquids such as water and alcohol mixed with dirt and grime may be responsible for these stains. #preventiveconservation #museum #dresshistory#textile observation#countymuseum#fabric #dress#wedding dress#1930s #detail #dissertation #museumwork

I've realised that it is not a great idea to open a professional account on a Friday! But this is what happened this week: mounting of John Christensen pieces for a upcoming exhibition. I'm really, really good at cutting passe partouts by now.

Here’s what the museum team is working on today.  We’re photographing artifacts for our next online exhibit “America.” This is an Order of the Cincinnati issued to Henry Chapman and is signed by George Washington.  The Order was a group formed for Revolutionary War veterans to stay connected and is still around today!

"This whitewashed chest was one of three found in Hatnofer's tomb. Two of the chests, including this one, were probably made especially for his burial. They were filled with linen sheets of various qualities and weaves. Shown here with the chest are a shirt of fine linen; a sheet of superfine weave, probably used as an outer garment; and a sheet of coarser weave more than seventeen yards long, which may have served as a mattress. After it was packed with linen, the chest was tied shut with a piece of linen cord that was secured with a mud seal.
.
Inside the box were 30 linen sheets. The majority of which had been used before being buried in Hatnofer's tomb. All of the sheets had been cleaned and all but one were folded into small bundles and carefully packed into the box. Many had ink inscriptions of the treasury, indicating that they came from the royal storerooms.
.
Excavated by the Egyptian Expedition of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, 1935–1936. Acquired by the Museum in the division of finds, 1936."

These amazing artifacts are on display in Gallery 116 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.

Bartels intern Kaila Temple finds herself spending time with some interesting, if silent, friends during the month of August! Kaila is repainting some of Historic Deerfield's 18th-century shaped mannequins which were made for the museum in the mid-late 20th century by Long Island City manufacturer Mary Brosnan. Once finished, these mannequins will wear some of the exquisite 18th century fashions in the museum's collection. #museumwork #historicdeerfield

As a little girl I always enjoyed writing. I never knew how much I loved writing and that my talent was in my writing until later on in life. On last week, during a presentation on Museum Activism, I shared that my pen is my weapon. My God given talent of writing is my way of contributing to the change I desire to see in museums. It is the way I express my burning passion for African American museums.  I utilize my pen as a weapon to bring awareness and exposure to institutions that otherwise may or may be noticed.  My purpose behind putting my weapon to paper is for people to visit, support, donate and help sustain these institutions for generations to come. This is my vision. This is my dream. This is my legacy. This is my passion. #IAmTheAfricanAmericanMuseumActivist #LegacyChaser #PassionPursuer #ThereIsWorkToBeDone #CannotStop #WillNotStop #HeritageSalon #MuseumWork  #LeavingALegacy #JadaWrightGreene

Headpiece of 1938 wedding veil. Wire has been shaped to resemble a halo around the brides head. Rows of synthetic pearls have been hand-stitched onto the wire. The edges of the wire sit behind the ears allowing the large veil to flow out from there. There is also a smaller veil attached which went over the face. Physical damage consisting of missing pearls, loose pearls and threads, distortion of the wire frame,  frayed threads and small tears in the net are visible. #preventiveconservation #museumwork #museumworkers #artefacts ##dissertation #1930s #weddingveil #exhibition#fabric #costume #pearls #wedding#museum
