INDIALANTIC HERITAGE COMMITTEE ARCHIVES REPORT Carol Andren March 17, 2009 I met with Committee Chair, Jenifer Marx, on February 23, 2009 to review and evaluate the material in the file cabinet at town hall. Inventory of the File Cabinet (from the top) Drawer 1 Clippings Maps Publications and Newsletters Drawer 2 Oversized Documents and Photos in Legal size File Folders Committee Files Drawer 3 Photos (space available in drawer) Drawer 4 Mary Hayward original scrapbook and cc Notebook of clippings to be filed (check for dates on clippings) New Town Hall Scrapbook Jewell Loring File Very Oversized Documents and Photos As a result of the meeting we agreed to propose the following priorities: 1. Evaluate the external hard drive to check for content and space available. 2. Inventory material not stored in the file cabinet. 3. Pursue a naming protocol for digitized files so that they can be utilized on the town website. 4. Compile on disk the 2007 Photo Contest File (images and consent documents) to save room and make it more easily usable. 5. Find archival page sleeves with pockets for dvds to store appropriate files. 6. Digitize the Douglas scrapbook. Recommended long term work includes: Continue to digitize all clippings and material of historic interest. Obtain all available photos of councils and mayors and digitize them. Evaluate, organize and possibly digitize other files. Check books and publications in the files to see which could be digitized and put on the website. Prepare a book of Indialantic History. Report re the external hard drive. Carl (Andren) and I reviewed the external hard drive. There are 20 GB out of 80 GB remaining. The name of the drive is firelite. Many files were Mac files and not viewable. Basically the drive contains Loren Goldfarb’s files from the town DVD development, Ronnie Constantino’s photo digitizing
of a post card collection and digitizing to date of file material by subject.
