Archives of American Gardens Virtual Volunteer
Help the Archives Staff identify and tag its online images
You can help make the Archives of American Gardens' images in the Smithsonian's Collections Search Center more accessible. Professional catalogers in museums, archives and libraries are constrained by cataloging rules that do not always accommodate the language of the everyday user. By tagging an image, you are helping AAG provide another way for users to access that image.
The Collections Search Center
Found at www.collections.si.edu, The Collections Search Center allows for searches on over 7.4 million records, with over a half million images, video and sound files from Smithsonian museums, archives, and libraries including Archives of American Gardens records in SIRIS, www.siris.si.edu. Archives of American Gardens' records can be searched by garden type or style, garden name, landscape designer, geographic location, date and/or photographer to name just a few access points.
