Roving Archivist Rachel Onuf Visits NCCHP Research Library Project

On October 11th Rachel Onuf, Roving Archvist for the State of Massachusetts, visited NCCHP to take a look at the Research Library project. Rachel passed the first test with flying colors by not immediately running back to her car and driving away!

The Roving Archivist is made possible by funding from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, and offered via the Massachusetts State Historical Records Advisory Board (SHRAB).

The meeting and tour of the facility was extremely informative and we were more than impressed with Rachel's expertise and initial suggestions. We were also pleased to note that she appeared to genuinely enjoy viewing the museum collection and found the museum's mission worthwhile.

Next steps include the SHRAB report with written recommendations along with possible future visits to help guide the Research Library in the right direction.
