Abstract

Clothing and artifacts preserve cultural memories which solidify an attempt to maintain life and evoke meaning. Because of this, society collects, preserves, observes, and learns from these significant artifacts. Historically, the responsibility to collect and preserve have been performed by museums. However, from the progression of technology, a new institution has become responsible for collecting and educating the public: the digital collection. This new entity provides a more advanced, highly specialized, and greater amount of information output to a wider audience than was previously available. From this historical understanding, I have created the pilot digital collection for the College of Wooster, as well as an accessible and efficient digital collection construction process.
