The week started with Memorial Day so this was a shorter week. Again, I spent quite a bit of time working on the finding aid I’ve mentioned several times now but we also has a patron request come through for an interview transcript and the accompanying audio files. The archive doesn’t field a large amount of patron requests but we attempt to be prompt and as helpful as possible when one does come through. Dr. Truesdell fielded the phone call and was going to show me the process for downloading and uploading the appropriate files but the patron never got back in touch to finalize their order.
A short week but I’m gaining a lot of insight into how archives, especially smaller ones operate and function on a daily basis.
