State archivist says digital conversion lab breaks new ground

As state archivist with the Wisconsin Historical Society, Matt Blessing has presented his share of Governor’s Archives Awards.Saukville

Award winners are selected by the Wisconsin Historical Records Advisory Board, a panel of nine gubernatorial appointees that works with the Historical Society.

Until last week, however, Blessing has never presented the award to a community program as small as Saukville’s Oscar Grady Library.

The library was recognized for its digital conversion lab, a facility that is open to the public to preserve family history recorded in audiotapes, home movies and old photographs by copying them onto easily shared digital files.

In addition to the award, Library Director Jen Gerber was presented a $500 gift certificate from Demco, a Madison-based supplier of library and archiving supplies.

The presentation was made at the library in conjunction with last week’s Village Board meeting.
