Repatriation in EMu

Repatriation in EMu

I am planning a presentation/discussion about entering Repatriation and NAGPRA (Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act) information into EMu for the North American EMu Users conference in October. In preparation for this, I would like to get a survey of how museums are already entering this information and the challenges that they face in the process.

If you are *already* entering this type of information, could you please answer the following questions for me?

1. Are you currently entering Repatriation and/or NAGPRA information into EMu? What kind of information are you entering (e.g. claims, statuses, consultation-generated data)?
2. If so, have you customized fields or a created a module to do so? Or have you been entering the information into pre-existing fields?
3. In the process of customizing EMu or entering this information, have you dealt with any difficult questions (e.g. permissions, mapping workflow)? What are they?

I can’t say at this point exactly the format that this will take, but the information that you provide will definitely help to frame the discussion. Feel free to email me personally if you prefer (you can do so at the emuusers.org forum site).

Thanks for your help!
Kara

Re: Repatriation in EMu

Kara,

we too are working on the same information. Currently we have only used a flag in our catalogue module to indicate that the record is part of our NAGPRA works. We recently had a site visit, so we are looking into way to incorporate the information. If you want to email me, we can discuss further.

Regards,

Re: Repatriation in EMu

Hi Annie,
We enter Event records to represent stages in the Repatriation process. I gave an EMu Users presentation about it in 2009.  It's available here:

It may be best to download it and then run it in presentation mode, since there are some transitions in the PowerPoint that overlap. Let me know if you have questions.
