My name is Sarah Campbell and I am the Curator of Historical Collections at Holyoke Public Library. I have my MA in Art History, my MS in Information Science with a concentration in Archival Management and my BA in English. While I live in South Hadley, I am a born Holyoker. I was born in Providence Hospital and have had a permanent link with Holyoke ever since. I went to Miss Jone's Story Book Nursery, the Children's House, and finally Holyoke Community College. I love Holyoke and am quite excited about the many fascinating things that are going on right now.

Marvelous Microfilm Machines oh my!

Hi all,

Sorry about the delay. I have been going through the process of purchasing a new microfilm machine for the History Room. Yet this is not just your run of the mill every day machine. No- this machine will actually digitize the article on the roll, allow you to clean up the image, sharpen it and then print it out with a clear crisp image. It will also let you send the image right to email- thus allowing your patron just to put that article into whatever context they wish. Pretty neat huh? Im exited. We might actually be able to create a searchable database- wouldn't that be so cool! We will have people flocking from everywhere.

So I thought that I'd share that bit of happy news before I got into my topic for today.
