The site is prepared for the new wheelchair ramp that will be filled in during the next few days. The front entrance to the museum has been dug up and visitors have been required to use the side entrance on occasion. The new flooring will be extended into the current museum gift-shop area next week and the lobby entrance repaired. Doors are being mounted onto the new facility and soon the climate inside the building will be able to be regulated so that mill work/cabinetry can progress.
This Thursday the University of Western Ontario hosts an open house for incoming graduate students. The Anthropology Department will be accepting several new students who will be spending a lot of time at the facility working with digital material culture. We're excited to welcome them, and look forward to the near future when the facility is officially open and buzzing with intellectual activity.
