In January 2020, the metadata team at the Autry Museum of the American West began populating the Events module in Mimsy with a rich data set of our exhibition history. This Module now includes nearly 400 exhibitions from both the Autry and the Southwest Museum of the American Indian, from 1983 to the present. Our presentation will demonstrate how our new Events module became more than a tool for searching the collections on display. We will address the digitization and storage strategies as well as explore the access to exhibitions data for diverse users.
