Conquering Microfilm Mountain

Congratulations to our interns who completed their first full project last week.  Spearheaded by Kaitlyn with help from Paul, Jessica, and Bradley, our interns cataloged 1,107 boxes of microfilm and 4 containers of microfiche.  They collected informational data about what is on the film itself and evaluated the condition of each roll. Some of our existing microfilm exhibits signs of Vinegar Syndrome.  By discovering this and bringing it to our attention, we are now able to make plans to address it.  The interns were then able to box, rehouse, and label our film so it is more easily accessible.

Way to conquer Microfilm Mountain!
