This project is the culmination of over two years of work between Poudre River Public Library District and the Fort Collins Museum & Discovery Science Center. After selecting and testing a new database product (CONTENTdm®), migrating data from the old database to the new one, adding the Museum artifacts information to the new system, creating new workflow procedures for staff and volunteers, and creating a new website (whew!), we’re ready for you to enjoy! There is even a new name representing the collaboration between the Library and Museum – Fort Collins History Connection.
There are lots of new features to explore! Zoom in on maps, view scanned city directories, or browse the Native American collection in the Museum Artifacts area. Also try using the search box to uncover a myriad of historical resources.
Have fun and let us know what you think!
