From our Social Media: A Manuscript Collection Processing Party
Ain’t no party like a collection processing party! The University of Iowa Special Collections had our first Processing Party, organized by Processing Coordinator Jacque Roethler and Student Specialist Ella von Holtum.
18 staff members and student employees got together for one hour to help process a portion of a MASSIVE collection of papers. We did an initial sort of separating out the correspondence, and we accomplished 28 boxes! Definitely a do again! What would have taken 20+ hours only took one.
