Our new assistant Kent Woodrow continues to work on reboxing, having now completed work on Range 2, moving on to Range 3, while my time continues to be spent in scanninng Presbytery records, as requested by several Presbytery members.

Kent's off today. I spent a portion of the day reboxing some of the Allan A. MacRae collection on Range 7.
In other news, I was notified earlier this week that I had passed the re-certification exam for standing as a Certified Archivist.

Kent continued with reboxing today, moving collections out of the 30+ year old cardboard records storage boxes and into the new coroplast boxes from Hollinger-Metal Edge. He has now moved on to working on Range 2, with Range 1 having been completed yesterday. The work ahead of Kent looks like this:

On Range 7 we will use the older translucent white coroplast boxes, so as to match what is already in place for the MacRae Collection.
My own work today has included scanning Presbytery minutes and then a journal article for a different patron. A separate request came in for the location of correspondence among the Papers of Dr. Allan A. MacRae, and while that collection is not yet fully arranged and described, I was able to locate at least some of the requested letters.Accession of accruals to several existing collections has consumed the remainder of the day.
