If I want to find out information about a Greek or Egyptian mythological figure, I would probably start with the subject matter and symbolism tab, and possibly also check the historical context tab afterwards.
If I want to learn about sculpting techniques or how a piece of jewelry was made, I would look under the style and function tab first.
No more than two students may sign up to work on one object. Object choices are in the Fairfield University Art Museum and The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
