The Collections include what we call "tangible" and "intangible" culture. Tangible culture refers to items that convey cultural knowledge through things, like a pot in a museum or a dress that someone models in a photograph. Intangible culture is knowledge that is conveyed through stories, songs, or oral history interviews. If you want to know more about how we went about gathering these kinds of materials, check out the "Galleries" section of iShare.
