The objective of the project was to determine the feasibility of the bringing together historical materials by collection, copying, and exchange, which related to the great heritage (Dutch) upon which those institutions were founded. The collection includes records of the organization since its inception in 1964 and continues to the present, and a digital version (PDF) of the publication Sites of Dutch Influence in Western Michigan: An Illustrated Tour Guide (1996).
