Coleman County Foundation
Awards $7,632.00 Grant Funds to Coleman Public Library
to preserve and digitize the Woodward Texas History Collection.

The Coleman Public Library partnered with the Abilene Library Consortium, received a grant December 11th, 2014, from the Coleman County Foundation to preserve, catalog and digitize selected materials from the Woodward Texas History Collection. The collection was donated to the library in the early 1990's by the family of Dr. Mac Woodward. The collection includes approximately 800 books and booklets with published and unpublished materials and memorabilia. Along with materials related to Texas and two prominent Coleman families - the Woodwards and McClellans there is also limited editions, some of the booklets are rare self-published editions, scrapbooks, newspaper clippings, telegrams, letters and photographs of the McClellans and Woodwards.

Abilene Library Consortium, (https://www.alc.org/) incorporated in 1991 as a regional nonprofit 501 ©(3) library consortium to serve libraries and other cultural heritage organizations across Texas. The consortium's primary mission is to deliver higher-quality library services to its communities through resource sharing and collaboration. This project will provide for a professional archivist to complete a thorough inventory of the collection and initiate measures for staff training to preserve the collection from further deterioration. Bookcases will be covered with archival lining to insulate the acid in the wood from the books. Re-housing scrapbooks, photographs, and other loose items in archival boxes will address damage due to light. To give the collection's books a worldwide presence, Coleman Public Library will add the titles to its local catalog and to OCLC (the world's largest online catalog of library materials.) Items of great historical interest, such as letters, telegrams, and photographs will be selected for digitization on the West Texas Digital Archives, a free public online repository containing over 50,000 unique historical items. The Coleman Public Library and Abilene Library Consortium are excited to begin this project and both recognize that the Woodward Texas History Collection represents important pieces of Coleman and Texas histories and should be safeguarded for future generations. Digitizing materials will allow patrons to view this priceless historic content without exposing the original physical objects to further wear and damage. Once it is finished patrons will also be able to view the collection on this website.
