Typing the Day Away

Happy July, Everyone!

Things have been quiet here at the archives blog for the past month but that doesn’t mean the work has stopped.

My current project has been to take all the information that staff and interns have gathered from over 2,000 records stored at the warehouse and input that data into a spreadsheet.  This process makes the information searchable and helps us answer your records requests more fully and completely.

Descriptive information gathered from books at the offsite warehouse.

While I work with this data, I am also creating finding aids or research guides that will help both staff and public researchers know what our collection contains and how it can be used.

Certainly not as exciting and fun as some of our projects but absolutely necessary to make the archives as efficient and accessible as  possible.
