Our ability to catalog existing collections and make them available to researchers could be negatively impacted by further cuts in state funding to OHS.  The Ohio General Assembly and the Governor have not passed the final state budget.  If you have not done so, there is still time to contact your State Representative and State Senator.  Tell them that history matters to you.
