The Erie County Historical Society
Erie, Pennsylvania

Through an Erie Community Foundation grant, Steve Germann was hired by the ECHS to do a collections content and condition assessment for this entity, formerly a library and archive, which had some time before merged with the Erie Historical Museum. While the archival collections of the ECHS were in good condition and well organized and cared for, the museum collections they inherited from the EHM presented major problems of content, condition, and documentation. Our report suggested ways in which these problems might be addressed.
