Shelving Crisis

July 11, 2006

Last week I had a bit of a crisis re: the archives “vault”. The term vault is loosely applied to a locked closed with concrete block walls to which only a few have keys. I’ve been concerned for a while about the shelves because they are made of wood. They are also strangely laid out so you can’t even get to some of them. I ran out of space a while back and I’ve had to start piling boxes on the floor, never a good idea. Friday some microfilm arrived from the registrar’s office to be added to the previous records in the vault. Panic ensued as four people searched the vault and could not find the previous records. We did finally find them…right at our feet…under a huge box with a wedding kimono in it. I guess I’ll keep lobbying for new shelves. I will also label the vault “Fibber McGee’s Closet”.
