Database Renewal Project
I know that people are actively working in the new system and adding lots of photos and information to their records. It's great to see such progress and to hear that everyone is pleased with their new museum toy. As a reminder, please try to narrow down your begin & end dates for when the artifact was made. This will be very important to the public website, aka phase II of the renewal project.
Site Visits, aka Karin on the road
I spent a lot of time on the road in July, visiting 12 sites across the province. August is going to be even busier now that the majority of migrations are done. Aside from this past week, the weather has cooperated and I've been enjoying some lovely drives in our very scenic province. While I have fallen behind in my travelogs, I do have a great stockpile of images and stories to share. So once things settle, you'll be able to read all about my adventures with fog and fossils and 35-pound lobsters.
QR Code Usage Stats
Shelburne County Museum has a qr code scavenger hunt that they are inviting visitors to do. When completed, visitors return their sheet to staff to be entered into a prize draw - a great way to encourage visitors to check out all the codes and spend more time in the museum.
