Processing Communication materials

September 4, 2006

We seem to be getting back in the swing of things. I hope to have some table space before the first class comes-a researching.

We are into processing the files that came over from the Office of Communications at the beginning of the summer.  Student workers used an Access database to put in the Collection number, box number, folder number, title, series, type of contents for the first 5 boxes.  I figured out, this morning, how to use the “Avery Wizard” to make labels with numbers and titles.  Now they are transferring the files to acid free folders and labeling.

Now that the procedure is worked out I’m hopeful that things will move along quickly.  I’m having them label the items with the format 37.1.25 rather than Coll#37, Box#1, Folder#25. I believe this will save a lot of time and be effective, as long as we are consistent.
