Butte/Silver Bow Public Archives – Photograph Database

The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives conducted a survey to set priorities for rehousing and digitizing their photograph collections archives. This survey became the foundation for a photograph collections policy and procedure manual, outlining a preservation plan for all Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives’ photograph collections.

The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives is a popular source for public programming, historical exhibits, and special historical events. This survey helped the Archives better understand what photographs it holds in its collection, which ensured better access to the collections.
