Approximately 50 new church record finding aids have been added to DSpace and will soon be in Voyager and WorldCat. The extraordinary students in Special Collections have been working hard to continue adding information to Archivists’ Toolkit. Over 200 out of approximately 1000 church record microfilm collections have digital finding aids and are in the queue for addition to DSpace, Voyager, and OCLC.
None of this could be done without the thorough and hard work of Carolyn McCallum. She is integral to completing the steps of the workflow. We are so happy to be collaborating with Resource Services to push our materials out to more patrons and make our sometimes “hidden collections” accessible to as many people as possible. Soon one of our most highly used collections will have complete online finding aids!
