Step up to Verandah, the Beach Museum of Art’s new collection search tool, a collaboration between the museum and Hale Library at Kansas State University.
Verandah, can be accessed at https://beach.k-state.edu/explore/collection/
Verandah searches call up images and basic information about artworks. Extended labels, publication lists, links to videos, and other educational enhancements, will become available as the staff is able to add them. Verandah replaces an earlier, commercial search tool that was both costly and unreliable. Together members of Hale Library’s IT team and museum staffers have created a better tool. After thorough testing, Verandah will be offered free of charge to other museums and libraries.
Support for building this application was provided by the Weary Family Foundation.
