What Are You Working On?

Today’s “what are you working on?” post features another of our hard working and dedicated student assistants, Nate. In his second year of service in Special Collections and Archives, Nate can be found on any given day assisting Beth in rare books, digitizing manuscript collections, or generally being our “Jack of all trades.” Today he is working on helping relocate hundreds of linear feet of church and biographical files for our upcoming construction.We appreciate all of the hard work Nate and all of the student assistants do for us, we would not be a success without you. Thanks, Nate!

Meet Chelsea Hosch. The face of the Special Collection and Archives reference desk on Tuesday and Thursday mornings, Chelsea has been doing excellent work! She is working on inputting Biographical Files into Archivists’ Toolkit and scanning all of the images in these files for a long term, highly anticipated digital project. Chelsea is a sophomore, but this is her first year working in Special Collections and we are so happy that she has joined our team. She has also helped tremendously by adding additional information to the Tribble Presidential Papers, allowing staff and researchers to find materials more quickly. Thanks to Chelsea and all of our student assistants for their fantastic work!

We are so happy to have our students back for the semester and are eager to show the world what we are working on. Pictured is student assistant Palmer Holton holding pulp fiction from the Clarence Herbert New Collection (MS577). This collection contains a wide variety of materials including photographs, maps, manuscripts, and printed materials. Although it will be a while before this collection is processed and has a finding aid available, we are excited about the process. As you can see in the picture, sometimes working in Special Collections is dirty work. Palmer’s job is to scan these materials so that patrons can access the content without getting their hands too dirty! Included in the pulp fiction materials are “Blue Book Magazine”, “The Red Book Magazine”, “The Premier”, and “Adventure” from the 1900′s to the 1930′s. This is a visual and content rich collection and we can not wait to finish processing so that researchers can access these materials. Thanks to Palmer and all of the student assistants who work so hard to make the collections available to the public.
