What is the Documenting Project?

Text Box: a database for protection. This process will allow us to print up better tags, make the collection available online to members, and most importantly, it will allow us to know what we have in the collection. 

We have developed a simple process that allows anyone to help; with the thousands of objects we have that help is really needed to get the whole collection documented! 


Text Box: Many of the societyís objects were collected in the 1940ís through the 60ís; we do not know the history of a lot of our objects. Most what we know is on an old tag used by Dr Klofanda. The tags were created from left over medical documents. Some of the information was lost, or more likely, never collected.
