St. Catherine's School
Richmond, Virginia
My work is a 20-hour part-time position as archivist for an independent JK-12 all-girls school, founded in 1890. The archive was established 25 years ago by the school's librarian, and managed by alumnae, of which now I am the one. My tasks are soup to nuts for accessioning, arrangement and management of the collections, sharing their stories, working closely with our school community on research and related projects (oral histories, student projects), fact checking, preservation, storage, and moving forward with digitization. I'd like to know how to prioritize these responsibilities, upgrade our finding aids (index cards), and digitize effectively. Thanks!
