Collections in process, finding aids coming soon!

November 11, 2009

In the next few weeks, three of the Archives' largest unprocessed collections will have new finding aids* online. Two iSchool graduate students, Laurie Rizzo and Eric Rosenzweig, are processing three of our collections: Evening College records, College of Engineering records, and Library records. As mentioned in this space earlier this year, this work is possible because of a grant-funded project of the Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections (PACSCL). The 'Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives' Project is funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and administered through the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR). Yo can see photos of the processing here. To follow the progress of the project, add the PACSCL Hidden Collections Processing Project Blog to your bookmarks or RSS reader. *A finding aid is a description of an archival collection, including an inventory of material in the collection and descriptive notes on contents and creator.
