Graduate student to present museum accessibility research

As part of her master’s graduate project, anthropology and museum studies student, Gracie Tolley implemented a QR code-based solution for low vision visitors at the Lowell D. Holmes Museum of Anthropology. Tolley will be presenting a poster version of her research from 2 to 5 p.m. on April 26 on the first floor of Neff Hall.

The loss or alteration of vision is one of the most common disabilities globally. It can impact anyone, regardless of their age or health status. In the museum field, these vision limitations must be addressed in the way information is presented to the public.

This event is part of the Holmes Museum’s spring open house, which will feature new exhibitions developed by museum studies certificate students.
