I don’t have much to report this week except to say that I received and email that my Gaylord order is being processed and shipped! Hooray!
In the meantime, the scanning and sorting is still slowly happening. My scanning assistant is done with school for the year. She has been knitting quite a few sweaters so if I can get her to put the needles down and get back to the scanning, we will be on our way to making more progress in the scanning department.
When I get the order of archival supplies, I will write another update with photos of what I purchased and how I’m planning to store the items.
Stay tuned! In the meantime, stay safe and healthy and happy scanning!
Once my scanning assistant is done scanning, these photos, clippings, and other items have just been going back in the box or envelope for now. I don’t have on hand the items I need to store these treasures in archival sleeves, albums, or boxes. I do have a few archival boxes but they are the kind for documents, not really set up for small photos. So, a shopping “trip” was in order.
A friend and colleague has been working on the same kind of project (hi, Yvette!) and her photos of her archival albums got me to shopping. Gaylord Archival is a fantastic resource for archival materials: binders, albums, photo sleeves, folders, boxes, and so much more! I ordered some archival photo sleeves in two sizes, a binder box, and some folders for booklets.
This is part one of this series because, I’m only reporting that this week all I managed to do was get that order in. And they are located in New York. At the time of my order, the state was on lockdown for the COVID pandemic. When this posts, they may be open and shipping. We shall see. I will have to report back when the items arrive and more progress has been made. In the meantime, we get a little scanning done in between finals and AP tests!
