Measurable Outcome(s)

We achieved our goal of filling in a gap in our collections by acquiring the microfilm and cataloging it to make it available for staff, volunteers, and researchers. The project reaped immediate benefits by giving our curator access to newspapers from the 1970s that proved valuable for our new Good Sports of the North exhibition.
