Look what just rolled through the door of the Archives this morning! It is a custom built cart specifically designed to transport oversize archival materials (often stored in oversize map folders) from our storage area to the reading room for reference.
An oversize cart has been on the Archives’ wish list for many years, but has proven extremely difficult to find through the normal vendors. Russell Moore, lead locksmith in Wright State University’s Physical Plant, designed and built this beautiful and functional cart. The cart provides support for our largest archival documents and contributes to our preservation efforts. Thank you to Russell and to Supervisor Gregory Phillipps for all their time and effort to make this happen! With Preservation Week coming up April 22-28, this is a great way to celebrate.
