Project Overview

A digital microfilm/fiche scanner system was purchased and installed at the Hibbing Community College library. Archived resources, including newspaper materials, are now more accessible to students, faculty and staff as well as being available for inter-library loan requests. HCC's resources compliment those resources held at regional libraries and museums thereby serving the extended public as well. Notice of the grant award was published in the HCC weekly news bulletin, on their Facebook page, in the Library Information and PALS Service newsletter and in an article written in the Hibbing Daily Tribune.
