7. The Archive Room

The Archives room could be called the records room. It is where all the newspapers, books, manuscripts, photographs and special (paper) collections are kept. It is here that all of the paper records and also the objects (artifacts) are catalogued (indexed) in a special computer program so that information can be found when it is requested. Archives work is done throughout the year by volunteers. In the summer, when the museum is open, this work is also done by students who are trained for the work. The students also greet visitors, do tours and sell some souvenirs.
