In August 2010, Reynolda House embarked on a three-year, comprehensive electronic cataloging project of the Museum's collections. The first year of the project was focused on cataloging objects in the fine art collection, while the second and third years expanded their concentration to incorporate objects from the historic house. This included photographing each object, organizing existing documentation, and creating original research. We purchased a new database, The Museum System (TMS), in which we are able to enter all of this information.
