Project Details
Removal of mold discovered during inventory.
Removal of mold discovered during inventory.

The Carver County Historical Society was issued funding for a complete inventory of their 3D (artifacts other than paper or digital material) objects collection. Each of the over 13,500 items in the collection was carefully cataloged, including approximately 1,500 items that had not been properly recorded before.

Because of this undertaking, the Carver County Historical Society now has an improved understanding of the contents of its own collection, including under- and over-represented areas. Storage space may now be used more efficiently, and decisions about additions to the collection may be made with full understanding of what is already there. Perhaps the greatest benefit, however, is that the collection has become more accessible to CCHS employees and researchers alike.
