The projects aimed completion of the cataloguing backlog. At the inception of the first grant (“Phase I”, October 2012), the museum had catalogued only 29,000 out of the 116,000+ lots in its collection. The project objective was to accelerate, through hiring of specialized personnel, the rate of cataloguing of the Museum’s specialized collection of shells, preserved mollusks, and other related biological materials (egg cases, etc.). Phase I allowed for cataloguing of a total 58,000 lots between October 2012 and September 2016 (4 years). Phase II, which started in October 2015, aims to complete, by March 2018, the cataloguing backlog, add collections received from 2012 on, and refine the taxonomy and relevant collection metadata.
