LHC Says Goodbye and Thank You to Two Volunteers
This week we are saying goodbye to two volunteers who have been working at the LHC this summer. Audrey Borus (shown on the right) has been cataloguing a large backlog of books that have been accumulating over the past several years. This was an extremely important job, because the only way for our books to be accessible to the public is for them to be searchable in our database. Audrey was meticulous in her work, always doing her best to make quality records that would be of the most use to our patrons. Thanks so much, Audrey!
Meghan Bailey (shown on the left) has been working on our backlog of collections. She worked on three collections: The Bruce Family Papers, The Moulton Batchelder Papers, and the John S. Harrison Civil War Letters. These were three very important collections that desperately needed to be processed, which Meghan did expertly. She researched the people and places mentioned in the collections and wrote excellent finding aids that will allow people to explore these materials more fully. Without her help people would still not know that we have these marvelous collections. We greatly appreciate all your hard work, Meghan!
