A brief update on our project with the Lake Oswego Public Library on their historical collection!
This incredible partnership has allowed OHC to work with new volunteers on organizing and cataloguing thousands of photographs, documents, and more. With the bulk of the preservation work accomplished, we are now in our next stage: INDEXING.
Indexing allows us to build a navigable list of what's in a group of items. Instead of researchers digging through thousands of photographs, the index will allow them to understand at a glance what they'll find. This incredibly useful tool means that the LOPL historical collection will soon be easier to navigate!
AND THAT'S NOT ALL...
Once we're done with the LOPL collection, we'll be working on our own! These indexes will be available on our website so that you can see, in depth, the items we have in our archives. A great tool for researchers and the curious alike!
