Smithsonian Launches Digitization Project for Cosmetics and Personal Care Items

The Smithsonian has launched a personal care and cosmetics digitization project. “The National Museum of American History, with the support of Kiehl’s, plans to extend the collection to the Web through the Cosmetics and Personal Care Collections Digitization Project. A museum specialist will identify, photograph and provide descriptive information for the cosmetic and personal care objects collection on the Web. The project will allow the museum’s collection of cosmetics and personal care products to be accessed online for education and research around the world. Digitization initiatives of this type are a priority for all Smithsonian museums and research centers.”
