Welcome to IMA Dashboard, an ongoing effort to measure various aspects of the Museum's performance. We welcome your comments on our progress in serving the IMA's mission. To navigate the Dashboard in particular areas, the tabs at the top of the screen drop down to allow for more detail. The goal of the Dashboard is to seek to quantify and report out on areas of activity of general interest to museum observers and to particular interest to museum studies specialists, colleagues, and patrons.
Number of requests for images utilized for museum projects, publications, and public presentation since January 1, 2008.
This is the number of requests via phone, email, fax, or letter to the Photography Services Department for permission to use images for scholarly or commercial uses, as well as requests from IMA colleagues to fulfill project, publication, and programming requirements.
The Rights and Reproductions Coordinator of the IMA manages public requests for images of the works from its permanent collection.
The sum of requests is reported to the dashboard by a representative of the Photography Services Department on a monthly basis.
