Resources for Historical Organizations
DCHC is committed to helping build our history partners’ capacity by creating opportunities for development and providing resources.
The DeKalb County History Center is committed to working with local historical organizations. Here you can find a variety of resources as a guide to many challenges faced by those in archives, historic sites, libraries, and museums. Many of the links are from the Minnesota Historical Society and the Indiana Historical Society.
