The Penobscot Marine Museum recently received two grants to make the job of archiving these pictures online a lot easier, and quicker.
“We came up with the idea of using a high end 35 mm SLR camera to do that so it would be an instant capture. The grant allowed us to get the camera and a lens and its just a huge step for us. It quadruples the speed that we can capture these images in,” said Kevin Johnston, Photo Archivist at Penobscot Marine Museum.
It has taken six years for museum employees and volunteers to put 60,000 images on their website. They hope to get the remaining 80,000 pictures online in half that time.
