We all greatly appreciate this important recognition from the Ohio Historic Records Advisory Board, in awarding us one of their two awards in kicking off their new achievement awards programs.
However formally awarded, this is an honor we all share. The nomination stressed the multi-level community collaboration of CSU departments, KSU library practicum students, various partnering public libraries, historical societies and government agencies sharing resources and the partners in the Ohio’s Heritage NE, all collaborating to make information on the region’s history available to its citizens. We felt the process by which Cleveland Memory (and OHNE) were built is as important as the digital content it provides.
Thank you all for your participation and I hope we can forge even closer relations in the coming months and years, especially as the economy challenges us all to find new sustainable models to achieve our goals.
And congratulations to the Montgomery County Records Center and Archives, too!
