Moving out…moving in.

June 24, 2008

I’ve decided that moving is actually a good thing, even if it is a lot of work.  We are discovering stuff that was so deeply buried it hadn’t surfaced in the 5 years I’ve been here.

Using colored dots to color code the four collections are in document boxes is turning out to be such a great idea, I wonder that I didn’t think of it years ago.  The four collections are mss, programs, alumni and faculty.  For 5 years I’ve been explaining to my new student workers where one stops and the next one starts.  Now it is obvious: mss=green, pro=red, al=yellow, fac=blue. Since they will be numbered as well the chances are good that a box will get back to the right home.  So often the simplest changes can make such a difference.
