There are so many reasons I can’t believe it’s the end of August already. First, summer always passes too quickly and unhappily (for me and every student and teacher I know) September shows up before I know it. Secondly, we have been so busy at ADEPT that these last few weeks have just flown by (which is also why it’s been two months since our last post).
While the time has been fleeting it has not been wasted. We are fortunate to have 13 dedicated volunteers working on ADEPT this summer, making a total of 15 people on the project since we started in January. Together they have updated 3,523 database records and imported 1,190 images into the database. Put another way, 25 years (1985-2010) of the Society’s object collections records are now fully searchable.
Saying that I’m pleased with our progress would be an understatement. We started the project six months late, but thanks to our project staff we have already surpassed our annual goal of 3,000 records in just seven months. I am overwhelmed by and thankful for everyone’s efforts and generosity. Thankfully almost all of them are staying on for a while.
Thanks to them I may even be looking forward to September.
