BYU Museum of Art now offers eMuseum Web database

The Brigham Young University Museum of Art is pleased to announce a groundbreaking facility providing public access to their 16,500-piece permanent art collection.

The museum's collections, exhibitions and educational materials can now be instantly accessed through The Museum Systems database via eMuseum on their Web site at www.byu.edu/moa.

As part of the museum's effort to provide excellent research and learning tools to BYU students and faculty as well as the campus community and museum patrons, the museum now provides this next step in accessing their collection through the Internet.

"The eMuseum site makes it possible for museum professionals, collectors, students and art buffs to access images and research materials for their personal and professional use," said museum curator Dawn Pheysey.

The eMuseum application, provided by Gallery Systems, provides Web-based access to collections information held in a database such as TMS.

Information is accessible to eMuseum users on a read-only basis using a standard Web browser. The records are derived directly from the TMS database so all information remains current.

The design of eMuseum is clear and easy-to-use and includes various options for searching and for displaying objects. For instance, one can search the entire collection by artist name, work of art title, date, art medium, subject matter or other. Through eMuseum, Web visitors are lead to areas of the collection that may have never been viewed by the public before.

Funding for this project was made possible by the generosity of museum friends and donors Ira and Mary Lou Fulton.

For more information, visit the Museum of Art Web site (www.byu.edu/moa) or contact Dawn Pheysey at (801) 422-8273.

A new study published in PLOS ONE from BYU scientists finds that the SARS-CoV-2 virus is almost immediately nonviable if deposited on a cash banknote.
