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.
