Faculty Files Finished

November 29, 2007

As the semester ends we just finished all 13 boxes of faculty files that came to us from Communications at the beginning.  They are all processed and entered into Archivists Toolkit.  It has been great to have that networked so my students could input the data as they went.  Of course I still need to fill in the rest of the information.

I’m trying to decide if it’s worth the time to do subject tracing on each faculty member, or if time wise in makes more sense to depend on Ctrl-F to find a name in the Finding Aid.  If I decide to do it “right” the finding aid may never get finished.  Ponder, ponder.

A big thanks to my studentworkers for a very long job, well done.  Julius Ferraro and Pete Murphy will graduating at the end of term, so huzzah to them both.  Also working on this project were Tiffany Bennett, Kate Schuster, Roger Arnold and Betsy Dingman.  We would never get anywhere with out their help!!
