Records Center & Archives Award

November 12, 2010 - A 2010 Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board's Achievement Award has been presented to the Montgomery County Records Center and Archives.

In 2006, the Montgomery County Records Center and Archives faced every archivist's nightmare. Active mold, cracked spines on bound volumes, and inadequate storage threatened the existence of the county's historic records. Through a systematic program of compliance with neglected records disposal schedules, environmental improvements and monitoring, and conservation treatment, Montgomery County Records Center and Archives staff have demonstrated that even monumental problems can be mitigated if approached with determination and creativity. The results of their efforts include reduced storage costs, improved access, and the confidence that the early records of Montgomery County will survive. OHRAB recognizes the Montgomery County Records Center and Archives for preserving Ohio's public history records.Montgomery County Records Center and Archives  - http://www.mcohio.org/services/recordarchives/about.html

Cleveland State's Special Collections Department also received a 2010 Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board's Achievement Award.  

Nominees for the Achievement Award represented small towns and large cities; public and private institutions; universities, historical societies, and records centers; and a full range of historic records - maps, photographs, marriage, birth, death, and estate records, and more. Common to all their successes were collaboration, determination, creativity, and a passionate commitment to the preservation and expanded use of Ohio's historic records. Clearly, Ohio's historic records community is achieving admirable results.

The Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board is the central body for historical records planning in the Ohio. Board members represent Ohio's public and private archives, records offices, and research institutions. http://ohsweb.ohiohistory.org/ohrab/
