What is SWAT?

Each year during the winter break, MSST program director Dr. Kasey Grier leads a group of students to small museum for two weeks of hands-on experience. Projects include inventorying, cataloging and rehousing items. Students follow up these activities with detailed reports outlining thier work and providing recommendations for future collections management activities.
