December 9th was a fun morning for Anita and I. We invited Paul Collins and Valerie Lenethan to the ANSM office to review the new database system. Not only was it fun to play with the new system, but being of similar collections manager mindsets, we enjoyed our little geekfest. We came up with a pretty big list of adjustments to be made to the new system which we're confident will make it even better and easier to use. Remember that migration will begin in January, and before you can be migrated I need to get all of your artifact images from the Originals folder. Please send these right away so we can get the migration going.
On December 10th we held our second social media workshop in Wolfville at the Acadia University Library. We had a great turnout and feedback from participants was good. Tracey and I enjoyed working together and hope that this is just the beginning of an ANSM-TIANS partnership. A special thank you to the Wolfville Historical Society who opened the Randall House Museum kitchen to us for our picnic lunch. It was a great chance to see the Christmas displays and newly acquired Nova Scotian prints, especially for those workshop attendees from further away who had never been to the museum.
