It’s been a packed 4 weeks at George Fox University. We’ve completed 17 collection-level descriptions (the grant called for 6), prepared collection survey and advocacy/outreach documents, and drafted a policy and procedures manual. When I return in June for the 2 week follow-up, we’ll finalize the manual, check to see how the new procedures are working, and prepare EAD and MARC documents for the collection descriptions. Then, on July 1st, GFU will become a fully-contributing member of NWDA. I see tremendous research potential in the collections, both within the GFU campus and from remote users, so expect that the archives will see an increase for information requests.

Concordia University – you’re next!
