Pella Historical Society and Museums People Photographs Collection Continues Expansion
And, the math adds up to indicate the popularity of this collection: - since September 1, 2020, the collection has had 887 page views!
In total, this brings our project to 1708 of 5500 documents completed, or 31% of the total project completed. Though it seems like a long way away, we are on track to complete the 5500 documents (this includes not only text but also photographs) by September 1, 2021!
Spotlight On: Backups and Preservation
With a project that has as much potential for expansion as the Pella Community Memory Database project, that isn't as much storage as one might think. We'll continue to keep the technology up-to-date and the project rolling forward!
