The project will build a repository for several national museums, integrating IGSN IDs as PIDs for the artifacts and other physical objects and samples available. The project will include the promotion of a national policy for the digitalization of all museum-related items, the assignment of IGSNs to artifacts and other physical objects in Nigerian museums, and sensitization of the Nigerian research and education community to inspire PID adoption. Globally, it will promote Nigerian indigenous knowledge and cultural heritage leading to increased awareness and commitment to the use of IGSN IDs and DOIs by the government, higher education, and research institutions to preserve such artifacts.
