A Week at the Reference Desk


My day was divided today between the Pulliam collection and the reference desk in the Archives and Special Collections reading room. I worked for two hours to continue addressing the particularities I found in the Pulliam collection (i.e., letters in the wrong temporal order, those written by someone other than Grady, materials that may need redacting). Then Rebecca gave me a tutorial of how to work at the reference desk, including policies and procedures, followed by an online quiz. After two hours of that, I went back to the Pulliam collection, finished deciding what to do about each particularity, and talked with Stephanie about how to move forward with the project by transferring the materials to folders from the plastic coverings in binders.
