Summarizes the findings of the first comprehensive survey to assess the condition of the U.S. collections. The study concluded that immediate action is needed to prevent the loss of irreplaceable artifacts held in collecting institutions, large and small, from internationally renowned art museums and research libraries to local historical societies and specialized archives.
Many new and interesting developments and program implementation through the Lincoln County Historical Association, and Lincoln County Museum of History are in the anticipated future.
I am the new Curator of Archaeology and Collections for the museum, and I am very excited about my new position. My varied background includes working for cultural resource firms, museums, and historical organizations. I am originally from Gastonia, NC and I have many varied interests. My research interests are specifically oriented toward "backcountry" studies and using the holistic approach known as landscape archaeology to study and interpret sites. I am also very interested in researching the Protohistoric Catawba history in the vicinity of Lincoln County, NC.
As the new curator, I will be keeping a blog to increase public awareness of important issues in relation to various issues relating to questions concerning collections care, historical architecture, local history, and archaeology. If anyone is interested in a discussion on a certain topic, the inquiries can be sent to the blog, or my e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will discuss the issues that are most significant.
