Log Number: MA-245286-OMS-20
Greenwich Historical Society (GHS) will increase public access to and knowledge of Greenwich history through ongoing stewardship of its archival collections. This project will support a new project archivist to process and create detailed online finding aids for 49 archival collections and a digitization specialist to digitize and describe 22,200 images and publish them online in the Connecticut Digital Archives (CTDA). Recently processed collections will be rehoused in new archival enclosures, improving the long-term preservation and stability of the collection. The completion of this project will make the collections widely accessible through the web sites of GHS and CTDA. Exhibition planning and educational programs will benefit from the discovery and exploration of collections long obscured by a lack of finding aids.
