Implementing a Barcode Inventory System at the National Museum of Mongolia

Dawn Rogala, MCI Paintings Conservator, recently traveled to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, to participate in and advise on a U.S. Department of State Ambassador's Fund for Cultural Preservation grant “Implementing a Barcode Inventory System at the National Museum of Mongolia,” a joint collections care project of the American Center for Mongolian Studies and the National Museum of Mongolia. During her time in Mongolia, she made presentations and led seminars on decision-making methodology in collections inventory, storage, and conservation, gave a public lecture on her modern paint research, and met with representatives of the National Museum of Mongolia, the National Cultural Heritage Center, the National Modern Art Gallery, The Fine Arts Museum Zanabazar, and the President of the Mongolia Committee of the International Council of Museums.
