This week we had two new volunteers start working on the project, Jenny and Devon. Jenny started out labeling and shelving and will hopefully get into some cataloging next week and Devon started cataloging books from the Interior Design Room. I am really enjoying their company as it gets a little lonely on the second floor, plus they have been a huge help this week (along with Amanda) in getting a lot of the work done in the Interior Design Room while I work on serials. I created a spreadsheet, as per suggestion by Mary Jane, including information about each serials collection we have, such as title, publisher, publisher location, and then dates and volumes that are in our collection. Mary Jane is going to use the spreadsheet to import records for each title and assign LC Call Numbers. We have some really old magazines going back to the late 1800’s, so it has been a fun experience looking through them all.
