Databases, Collections & Projects

The staff here at the Research Center have taken on many projects over the years, some have been completed, some are still a “work in progress” and some are still in the discussion stage. However, all of our projects are designed to utilize the talents and limited volunteer time of some of our patrons who want to help but can’t commit to a regular or stringent schedule. Regardless of the project type, all of them eventually become a resource for us to use for future research requests. Some of the projects we are currently working on are listed below.

If you would like to volunteer your time or expertise to one of these projects, or you have an idea for a project for us, please let us know. We also invite you to consider contributing financially to our efforts.
