Behind the Scenes at the THS Archives

A great big THANK YOU to all those who volunteered for the data entry project.  I am working with the Excel sheets to import the information into our Collection Management System (PastPerfect 5.0).  As a result of their efforts we now have/will soon have an electronic index of the Terry Helgesen Scrapbook Collection (by Bruce Cutter of Chicago, Ill.), the Bill Peterson Scrapbook Collection (by Karl Warner of Scottsdale, Ariz.), the THS Blueprint Collection (by Sheryl Davis of Trimble, Ohio), the Edward T. Gibbs Slide Collection (by Jerry Alexander of St. Louis, Missouri), and the Michael Miller Photograph Collection (by Al Bosch of North Haven, Conn.).  The Helgesen and Gibbs Collections have already been entered into PastPerfect and the other collections will follow.  It is very helpful to THS (and therefore our researchers) to have these collections in an easily search-able, sort-able format!
