Colfax Railroad Museum

Log Number: IGSM-245284-OMS-20

The Colfax Railroad Museum will transfer its holdings of railroad-related print, photographic, and video materials into an accessible collection for researchers that is housed in professionally acceptable storage and environmental conditions. Working in coordination with the Head Special Collections Librarian and University Archivist at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, the museum will inventory the collection and arrange for its storage in a facility with appropriate temperature and humidity controls. The project will alleviate the potential for damage to the collection's documents, books, and videos, and make them accessible to researchers for the first time.
