Let’s rewind to last week. I worked with several different transcripts to update their finding aids, and I made quite the mess. So this week was a lesson in cleaning up AND appreciating storage space in archives.
The transcripts in the archive are all housed in vertical filing cabinets, one archival quality folder per transcript. And right now there’s plenty of room BUT they still take up a lot of space on a campus with departments, faculty, staff, and student constantly competing for space.
