Kim LaPlante (Project Director: 05/06/2013 to present)

Historical Archives Preservation Assessment and Improvement

A preservation assessment; training on processing, organizing, and rehousing; and the purchase of archival supplies and a fireproof storage cabinet for the library's collection of 900 documents and letters, 400 brochures and marketing pieces, 500 books and booklets, 2,500 photographs, and 200 artifacts. Materials document the history of the adult vocational system within a changing labor landscape, offering insight on themes including language education for the region's early immigrants, continuing education for young adults who left school at 14, the impact of the Great Depression and world wars on the region, changing gender roles, and technology. Notable items include brochures of class lists, ledgers for expenditures for courses, and photographs of classroom instruction in basic skills such as electricity, house wiring, sheet metal, cosmetology, physical education, and printing.

Northeast Wisconsin Technical College requests a grant of $5,975 for its Historical Archives Preservation Assessment and Improvement project. Located in the library of the College's Green Bay, Wisconsin, campus, the archives consists of 4,500 items including documents/letters, brochures/marketing pieces, books/booklets, photographs and artifacts. The collection provides a unique glimpse into the history of the adult vocational system and the response of education to the changing labor needs of Northeast Wisconsin since 1912. The project will consist of three activities: (1) a preservation assessment of the collection by a professional consultant, (2) forty hours of training for the project director on processing, organizing and rehousing the collection, and (3) purchase of archival supplies and a fireproof storage cabinet to protect the collection. The goal of the project is to ensure the College's long-term ability to serve as stewards of its historical archives collection.
