CAHS Archives News
Letter from the CAHS Archives Director
December 12, 2015
To the CAHS membership and our donors,
We are upgrading the CAHS Archives computer system in order to create a more complete, accurate database of every item in the Archives.
As part of this upgrade, we are reviewing each item in the CAHS collection to verify the correctness of each item's paperwork and to determine whether each item fits the CAHS's criteria for being in the collection.
Our criteria for having items in the archive collections are three-fold:
As we review the items in the CAHS collection, we will review each whether each item fits one of the criteria for the collection. If we determine that an item does not meet the criteria, we will send the donor of the item a letter asking if the donor would like the item returned. If the donor would like it returned, we will make arrangements for them to pick it up. If the donor does not want it returned, we will determine what to do with the item at that time.
