Funding Needed: $106,000 (Funded)

A "processing blitz" will utilize small groups to arrange, describe, and organize large collections at Yellowstone’s archives. This project would be a model for repositories facing challenges in making their collections available to researchers. The new processing blitz technique will be shared with fellow archivists, and a blog will be the clearing house for project documentation. The project staff will submit proposals for presentations at professional meetings, and submit articles to journals for publication.

Funding Needed: $70,000

Learning from the past to preserve our future is the focus of this project. Questions that can be answered are: What are the long-term human responses to weather changes? And how and why do cultures change? Investigation will help tell the stories of how Native Americans utilized the area and its resources for many thousands of years before Yellowstone was a Park.
