New Location For Archive
We have moved parts of our growing archive to a space in the Chase Bank building, the old Stonewall Jackson Hotel, in downtown Clarksburg. Olymbec USA has graciously donated the space to us so we may organize, inventory, digitize and preserve our archival collections.
Volunteers from the community are needed to help with many aspects of the Archive Project. We are looking for volunteers who would like to be trained in accessioning our collections. This is the processes of cataloging all of our artifacts to ensure that they are preserved and organized. We are particularly looking for people to be trained on our computer program used to organize are objects, but if you are not comfortable with that we also do paper accessioning that anyone can learn. This can start at any time so please contact us if you are interested in being trained. This is an excellent opportunity to help the society in one of its biggest long-term projects. Please contact our AmeriCorps Volunteer Sydney at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or to sign up.
