Historic Saranac Lake

Log Number: IGSM-246003-OMS-20

Historic Saranac Lake will implement a project designed to gain intellectual and physical control over its collection in preparation for a major expansion into the historic home adjacent to the museum. The project represents the next step in the museum's recently completed Collections Preservation Plan. The project team will create catalog records for approximately 2,000 photographs and postcards from the museum's collections. They will rehouse and reorganize objects as needed and give individual objects unique identifiers. They also will create guidelines for appropriate storage in the new location based on data collected in the cataloging process. The catalog records will make it easier for museum staff to respond to requests from researchers and to better utilize collection images for exhibitions and programs.
