"Data Entry Guidebook"

The Data Entry Guidebook was written to help students and volunteers identify costume pieces as they enter the data in the Costume Pieces and Jewelry form.   Many volunteers have a lot of enthusiasm but little training.  The Guidebook can give your volunteers a little training to help them enter the data as accurately as possible.


 The Guidebook has 10 sections.  The first 7 and 9 & 10 are a free PDF that you can download (see link above).  The 8th section (Fabric Swatches) is included in the PDF but is blank.  You can cut your own swatches from your own fabric or purchase the swatch set in our store.
