New Feature -- Link to Archives Catalog

If you look very carefully at this page, you might have noticed some new information added to the left side of the page, above the subscription link. You'll see a link inviting you to "Search the Sandusky Library Local History Collections." If you click on the button labeled "PastPerfect Local History Archives," you will be taken to a website containing a catalog of items from the Sandusky Library's local history archives.
In this catalog, you will find records for: over 10,000 photographs (most with images attached); over 600 historic books and pamphlets about local history topics, or written by local authors; over 1500 items or collections from the archives. This catalog (as well as many of the records) is a continual work-in-progress -- not all items are cataloged; many records could use more thorough descriptions; and we are regularly adding new items to the collections as the are received from donors -- and it is not a real substitute for visiting the archives, but it will offer significant information for those wanting to learn more about Sandusky and Erie County, Ohio.

For more information, contact Ron Davidson, Special Collections Librarian. 419-625-3834.
