What’s been happening in/outside of the Archives

Having been professionally shamed for my lack of keeping up with the College Archives blog [don’t worry, I can handle it!], I submit a little list of our activities this summer and fall semester in the College Archives.  These activities don’t include those of the daily operations of the College Archives: reference duty,  processing, file requests, supervision.  So, take a quick look into our active world.
