Processing At The Hay

Sorry for not posting last week, it slipped my mind. The weather has been crazy and I have been in and out of the office. However, that has not stopped us from continuing the final phase of processing from The John Hay Library this semester.

Students are working in the stacks of the Hay to alphabetize sections of the Hall Hoag Collection. In the previous phase we organized material based on the letter of the alphabet for the name of that organization. So all of the material from an organization that started with “A” was placed in an A box. Due to the size of the collection we were not able to put each of the letters into perfect alphabetical order at that time. So, that is what we are doing now. Pictured below, two students are emptying and reorganizing all 60 boxes (5,700 folders) of material that starts with “U”. There is a lot of United States, university, and really just a lot of words that start with UNI.
