Re: Can behind-the-scenes tours raise awareness and funds for collections care?

Leslie Wyman

As a historical society, we deal not only with our museum collections, but also with our research library items, and are continually scanning and indexing our ledgers, pictures, etc for the researchers use. One of our volunteers for that area has already signed up to be on duty at a computer, indexing an 1800’s farm journal, as people come up, so she can discuss the process and show them how to look up things!
