Making Progress in the Digitization Project 

G L O B A L  A C C E S S   
The museumís Digitization Project, which began work in June 2015, is progressing faster than expected.
Digitizing the museumís archival collection is a long-term project that is expected to take ten years to complete. The purpose of this important project is to catalogue, scan, and create database records of the museumís growing archival collection. This will aid the museum in conserving its current archival resources and in making the museumís archival collection easily accessible and readily available for public consumption. The museum plans to develop virtual exhibits on the museumís website for the public to access. Additional long term goals of the program include providing public online access to portions of the museumís archival collection, followed by privileged access to local, regional, and national institutions of higher education to aid in academic research and elevated learning outcomes.

More To Do -
The museum has set a two year goal to digitize nineteen collections. ArchivesManager Ethan Bowers (above center photo) is happy to report that as of January 2016, eight collections have been fully catalogued and scanned, and data entry has begun on those eight collections. These collections constitute 7,000 to 10,000 items and nearly forty-five percent of the initial two year digitization goal. Over the next few months, more collections will undergo the digitization process and the museum will continue to take steps forward in completing this monumental but extraordinarily important task.
Please help us moving forward in the digitization process by making a donation to the effort today. You can make a donation online or call the museum at 260-925-1444.
