Volunteering at The Museum
This group of volunteers helps create a fuller experience for visitors. These volunteers are able to provide basic information about the history, resources, and other areas of interest to the visitors. They provide a face and visibility of the museum, interacting with the public in a bigger capacity than most staff. Museum receptionist will also assist with bulk mailings and the museum’s gift shop. They will receive visitors, complete transactions for admission, and gift shop items.
Slide Scanning, Don Hunter Project:
Slide Scanning is an important component for the Don Hunter Project. The project’s goal is to preserve 150,000 slides that photographer Don Hunter has generously donated to the Lane County Historical Society. Persons seeking to volunteer for this component should have experience scanning, using Mac and PC operating systems, email, and databases.
Volunteers can work on many different stages of the curation and exhibit processes. They may choose to focus on specific parts or the whole process from conception to installation. Exhibits are best suited to potential volunteers that are interested in the storytelling of history and how it is realized.
Becoming a board member is a way to volunteer for the Society. This is a nomination based volunteership. Please contact Bob Hart for more information: email@example.com (541) 682-4242.
