Page 8 Section 2 Free Press Cheney museum seeks help with tech upgrade The Cheney Historical Museum is seeking help to upgrade its computer and scanner/printer to complete the project of cataloging everything in the museum. Every object and photograph in the museum, along with all the information museum staff and volunteers collect about people, places, and events is being put into a database. This growing database helps staff build exhibits, care for items, and answer all the inquiries that come in from folks in the region and all over the world. The database houses all sorts of infor- mation about the objects in the museum along with a picture which helps staff keep track of the object as well as share it in online galleries. The museum also stores high quality scans of all of photographs that are used in exhibits and publications as well as sharing in online galleries. Museum staff scan most of the photographs and documents in-house using a scanner/printer, however many of the items are larger than the standard letter size capacity of the machine. The process of scanning .in pieces and using software to reas- semble the item to a whole is time consuming and it can also be a dangerous for some of the fragile items in the collection. For a number of years we haYe been searching for a large format scanner at a :tiny museum budget price. This year, for the first time an affordable large format combination scanner/printer has become available. The Hilton family donated a computer, printer/scanner and the museum database software in 2004 and staff say they have accomplished a great deal using that equipment. However, the comPuter no longer has the processing power to handle what the museum needs. Like a truck being asked to haul a bigger load, it just doesn't have the horsepower to do the job anymore. The museum needs to upgrade to the right tools for the job it's doing today so that the cataloging project can be completedr. The old equipment will still have a use at the museum; staff will find jobs for them to continue a useful life. Museum leaders are asking for help from the public to ac- complish this upgrate. Folks can help out by making a donation through the museum website, www.cheneymuseum.org or by mail to: Computer Fund, Cheney Historical Museum, P.O. Box 457, Cheney, WA 99004. For more information about the Computer Fund Drive, the cata- loging project or the museum call director Joan Mamanakis at 235- 9015.
