Archives Alive: Building Primary Source Collections During Covid-19 at the Henry Sheldon Museum, Vermont

Three staff members to expand content of the ephemera, photography, and map sections of the museum’s new website; transfer digitized photo files into the digital repository; and increase social media presence and implement an online newsletter.

The Sheldon Museum’s Stewart-Swift Research Center requests support to continue work on development of its recently created website and the Center’s digital preservation project, as recommended by consultants to the NEH PAG grant completed January 2020. The NEH CARES grant will enable staff to perform essential work towards enhancement and access to and digital preservation of the Center’s archival collection that otherwise would be compromised due to the coronavirus pandemic. The project will focus on access expansion of visual collections on the new website; implementation of the Center’s online newsletter and increase of social media presence; and transfer of digitized photo files into the digital repository. This project will retain employment of the Archivist, partially retain the Museum Associate Director, and create a new position, which will maintain staffing crucial to museum operations and successful completion of website collections access, preservation, and outreach.
