A New Era in Our Collections History

Tin lantern with burning candle close up in a dusk setting We are currently in the process of digitizing our library and historic collections to increase access to these rich and invaluable sources of information. Once the digitization process is complete, every item in our library catalogue and the accession record of every object in our Historic Collection, accompanied by a digital image, will be available online.

This ambitious project has been made possible by the use of Re: Discovery software - a leading edge computer software program that creates digital collections databases. The library collection will be online in 2008 followed by the Historic Collection in 2009.
