Adopt A Drawer invites donors to support the cataloging of one of more than 1,800 artifact storage drawers at the Peabody Institute. A gift of $1,000 supports the professional cataloging of one drawer, including data entry, archival storage supplies, photography, and inclusion in the institute’s online catalog, hosted by PastPerfect Online. Work duty students and interns are heavily involved in the cataloging. Donors receive updates on the cataloging, including before and after photos, as well as acknowledgement in our online catalog.
Adopt A Drawer has allowed us to catalog and make available important collections ranging from Paleolithic sites in France to Chaco Canyon in New Mexico; from the Tehuacán Valley of Mexico to the homestead of a freed Black woman in Andover. Check out our progress in the Peabody’s online catalog.
