Monthly Meeting - July 17, 2007

The Cambridge Historical Association meets the third Tuesday of the month except for December. July's meeting included the following items of note:
  • Approved purchase of a microfilm scanner-printer (ScanPro 300, the same as used by the Maxwell Museum) for the Cambridge Library. This will replace the current system which only allows reading the microfilms of early Cambridge newspapers.
  • Decided to have Schools as the topic for our next book. As part of this we will have the graduating class pictures for the Cambridge School scanned. These pictures are displayed in the Cambridge Library. Scanning will allow them to be incorporated into the book and make them available digitally for other uses.
  • Approved providing Internet service to the CHA computer. Our thanks to the Story County IT Department for providing this computer as they upgraded their systems.
  • Approved purchase of a scanner for our computer.
