I feel liked I’ve been running since the semester started. Is it Thanksgiving yet?
Last spring I did the talk at one of the weekly faculty luncheons to raise the visibility of Archives and Special Collections. It worked! I had face time with three different classes, and have had students coming in almost daily (sometimes 2 or 3 a day) to do research.
We also had a very successful open house for reunion and as a result have had even more alum donations and questions.
I guess the website is working as well, because we are getting great response from outside researchers. We even had a professor from a Japanese university come for two days to use one of our collections.
Hey, it used to be quiet and lonely down here!
