The moving of Conte NARA facility microfilm collection continues…

The upper parts of the microfilm cabinets are being moved into the new space. These units had to be moved emptied. The drawers, pulled from the units, were wrapped in heavy cellophane to keep the microfilm reels clean and in order as the drawers are stacked.

Work will continue this afternoon on reassembling the cabinets in the new space. This work, likely finishing next week, will complete most of the move of physical materials to the Athenaeum. Still to come: Computers! which will move to the Athenaeum in late September. Training of Athenaeum staff  has begun and will continue. Processing of materials, a prodigious task, is next.


Reels and reels…..
