It’s great to be back at Pacific University where the fall colors are beginning to turn. Much of this week was spent reviewing progress since the original visit, including 3 more resource records ready to upload to the NWDA database and learning that an off-site researcher has been contact with staff as a direct result of a finding aid on NWDA. In combination with work completed this week, Pacific now has 18 finding aids on NWDA and 76% of its holdings have a robust accession record in Archivists’ Toolkit (AT). Work has also continued in developing the accession and description manual which will be ‘tested’ with a work study student next week.
Tomorrow is the 2nd annual Archives Crawl sponsored by the Portland Area Archivists. Archivist Eva Guggemos and I will be at Multnomah County Library (Central ) with an exhibit of materials from and about the Pacific University Archives. Hope to see you there!
