Measurable Outcome(s)

The short term goal of the project (newly digitized content used for Sesquicentennial Projects) was achieved. We knew going into the project that we had research projects that needed to utilize the 10 years of the Reporter that we were digitizing. This project was submitted to meet a known need. This made achieving our goal pretty easy to do.
Our long term goal is about ongoing usage beyond the Sesquicentennial. We are still in the middle of the 150th celebration so this goal is truly for the future. I would say it has been/will be achieved because we have clear indicators of progress that we can utilize to track increased usage.
