Six years ago, the Poweshiek History Preservation Project (PHPP), a collaboration between an academic and a public library, was launched to preserve and share items illustrating the history of Poweshiek County, Iowa. Within a few years, the project expanded to include the Grinnell Historical Museum and outreach to other county historical organizations. Over 1,400 contributions from individuals have been secured thus far, as well as digitization of thousands of items from the library and museum collections. In this presentation, the presenters will look back over the history of this project with a focus on the relationships between the institutions that have contributed to this archive, primarily Grinnell College, Drake Community Library, and the Grinnell Historical Museum.
