Paper, Not Plastic


I started transferring the Pulliam letters from plastic covers in binders to folders. It’s not particularly difficult, just extensive. I make sure to use acid-free paper to distinguish multiple-paged letters from one another and also to hold envelopes, newspaper clippings, advertisements, and other materials together with the letters they are grouped with in the binders. Rebecca continued to train me at the reference desk, showing me the proper forms as well as how and when to use them. To pass the time, she gave me some undocumented reference requests from recent visits to record in a Google document spreadsheet.
