Abstract

The Exploratorium is an interactive, hands-on museum of science, art and human perception, located in San Francisco, California. It has assets in all sorts of formats and in every condition, from hi-8 tapes to 35mm slides and everything in between. In 2003, the museum applied for and received an Institute of Museum and Library Services grant to begin creating a metadata schema, building a taxonomy and indexing Exploratorium digital assets, and it relied on digital librarians to get the job done.
