Archival and curatorial practices including information management within the fields of art and art history are changing. As a contribution to these vital fields of study, this project addresses their practical application in this digital age. My ten-week research project, Digital Curation and Information Management: Technological Changes in Art History explored this concept. Taking place at Wright State University (WSU), this included a practical application of my art history and motion picture coursework. This included investigating the many phases of digital image curation (the act of curating) through information analysis and management. The assimilation of online and written literature, program analysis, software training, film curation and photo-documentation were main contributions to my research. This project concentrated on a multifaceted interaction between the Departments of Art & Art History, Motion Pictures, WSU Visual Resource Center, WSU Galleries and curator for the Downtown Dayton Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Film Festival.
