The people involved with our collection have had a total of 102 production-related roles and this is page 1 of 3

Our cataloguers talk about roles as a way to describe how those responsible for a work were involved in its creation.

A single object may have multiple people, in a variety of different roles, associated with it. Different curatorial departments use descriptive terms in different ways. Over time, this creates tremendous diversity in the vocabulary that appears in collection records. We are currently working to reconcile these differences.

There are 102 production related roles and 20 donor related roles.
