Starting in 2012, the Museum fur Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg (MK&G) began a program of what Digitale Inventarisierung, or digital cataloguing, to digitize, describe, and make available online all of the Museum's approximately 500,000 artifacts. Currently a little over 10,000 items are available online, primarily photographs. To see all digital items simply place the cursor in the search box, and press search. For English speakers wishing to refine a search, it's best to select from the facets listed on the left: Collection; Object type; Artist/Maker; Material; Technique; Date; Place; Classification; and Further Use (e.g. rights information such as public domain, copyright, or CC-by). This is because although the site can be translated into English, the majority of the artifact metadata is in German. For items that originally appeared in print, such as the work of early photographers Julia Margaret Cameron, David Octavius Hill, and Robert Adamson, which appeared on Alfred Stieglitz's "Camera Work," links are provided back to the Deutsche National Bibliothek, the German National Library.
