June was another busy month in the Archives! Here are some of our activities:
June 9-12: Archivists and many, many volunteers cleaned the 1903 Wright Flyer replica that hangs in the Dunbar Library atrium.
June 13: We held a reception to thank everyone who helped clean the Flyer. We really appreciated all their hard work!
June 12: University Archivist and Records Manager Chris Wydman conducted a records management workshop for WSU faculty and staff. (You can always find a list of Chris’s upcoming workshops on the Records Management page of our web site, under Faculty & Staff Training; they are also listed on the University Libraries’ Workshops page.)
June 17: We installed a new semi-permanent exhibit about the Public History program on the fourth floor.
June 18: Archives staff attended a reception for all President’s Awards for Excellence nominees. We were nominated for Outstanding Unit.
In collaboration with the University Libraries’ Digital Services unit on our digital projects, the first batch of Miami Valley School (MS-358) materials are now online in CORE Scholar in preparation for the school’s 50th anniversary celebrations. We also began a project to digitize Alumni magazines from the University Archives.
