History of HRVH

Mission and Goals

Hudson River Valley Heritage (HRVH) is a service of Southeastern NY Library Resources Council (SENYLRC).

The mission of HRVH is to provide universal access to a collaborative digital record of Hudson River Valley history and creativity.

In order to achieve our mission, we have set the following goals:

  • identify organizational partners in the Hudson River Valley;
  • identify and include unique collections that reflect the historical significance of the Hudson River Valley;
  • train contributors to develop the skills to select and contribute to HRVH;
  • provide standards that create consistency in descriptions and allow for searching across collections;
  • promote HRVH as a valuable resource for students, educators and the general public.
