We will gather for the monthly research meeting this coming Tuesday, March 3, from 10:00 a.m. to noon in the Knight Research Suite in the Publications Department’s office area. We look forward to hearing about your current and planned research projects.
Lea Vander Velde’s new book, Mrs. Dred Scott: A Life on Slavery’s Frontier, is out and the MHS library has just received a copy.
The MHS Collections Management Dept. has begun working toward integrating all of the library’s WPA materials into one large online record. They’re using a technique called block-building, where various people are assigned different pieces of a project and the cataloging is added for each piece when it is finished. The same technique is being used for cataloging the Hill Papers and the Mondale Papers. No delayed gratification here!
If you can’t make the meeting but would like to send a message to the group (raise a question, ask for research help, make an anouncement, or offer a suggestion), let Debbie or Kathie know. We can even post your message on the blog, if you want, and you can receive “virtual” answers! If you really want to get into blogging, we can make you a “contributor” and you can post messages yourself.
Please let Debbie or Kathie know if you would like to remove your name from the monthly reminder list.
