2011 Fiscal Year Funding Amount

The Society purchased PastPerfect 4.0 software to track and record accessions. Previously, these records were kept in a hand-written logbook. To begin the process of reviewing and inventorying the collections, the artifacts were first re-organized and the storage rooms were thoroughly cleaned. Materials were divided and organized to be stored in two areas with different but appropriate temperature and humidity levels. The net result is the collections are in order, the storage spaces are clean and their environments moderated and staff is more able to accurately locate artifacts.
