A subject heading is a word or group of words used to describe a topic or concept. Since 1898, the Library of Congress has maintained the Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH), a thesaurus for use in bibliographic records, to catalog materials in its holdings. The LCSH is used by most libraries and archives throughout the United States.

In DHPSNY’s most recent live webinar presentation, Lauren Lyons, Chartering Coordinator, New York State Museum, discussed the differences between consolidating and merging a museum charter in New York State, what these application processes look like, and what the best options are for different circumstances. In order to combine resources or services, museums or historical societies might decide to merge or consolidate their charters. Or, due to various causes, an institution may decide to dissolve their charter altogether.

As we head into our Summer 2021 Planning and Assessment Services Application Round and prepare for a new class of awardees, we decided to step back and reach out to some of our 2020 sites to learn more about their virtual assessment experience and its impact on their institutions.

In response, Christine Gibbons, Board member and Communications Chair of the Orchard Park Historical Society, a 2020 DHPSNY virtual Archival Needs Assessment recipient, wrote the following article. Detailing the society’s history, base in the historic Jolls House, experience with DHPSNY, and plans for the future, we hope that Christine’s words will inspire other institutions to participate in our services, which, as always, are offered free of cost to NY institutions.
