The Otago Museum's collection audit pilot scheme, which has been combined with a new electronic artefact tagging system, has been progressing well, with more than 1000 artefacts tagged, organisers say.
The pilot scheme began in February and is due to end late this month, with artefacts photographed and radio tracking tags attached, experience and development director Clare Wilson said yesterday.
One unusual find among the humanities objects had been a pangolin (scaly anteater), which had since been relocated to a natural science area.
The Otago Museum is the first major museum in New Zealand to begin installing a new radio tracking system to monitor its artefacts.
