Digitize the Thom Dick Collection
Help the National EMS Museum scan, archive and make available to researchers, Thom Dick's collection of EMS journals, magazines, and other historical documents and photos. We are grateful to Thom and his family for donating the material to the Museum, now we have to make it accessible for everyone to use and enjoy!
We will start our project with digitizing the full run of JEMS magazines and set up a digital research library at the National EMS Museum (this will allow researchers all over the world to research EMS history!) - This first project will cost us $2,000 and we hope to have the Thom Dick Collection as the first collection cataloged in our Digital Library & Archives by January 2021.
We will continue on with the other papers, documents and photos in Thom's collection after we finish the first phase of the project.
Also, we will continue to raise funds to start digitizing the 50 big boxes of archival material in the National EMS Museum's collection including resources from the To the Rescue Museum and other donations over the last 15 years and build out our research library with lots of interesting collections.
Please help us save your history and share it with the world!
Thank you for your support.
