November 19, 2012: FCC history, scope and content. Final finding aid submitted. 5 hours
I worked on the final draft of the finding aid for the FCC (Federal Council of Churches). I added the history and scope and content notes. I submitted the draft to Brigette for review.
November 20, 2012: FCC labels and correct finding aid. Inventory of SCC and research on history. 5 hours
I received the corrected copy of the finding aid back from Brigette. I made the changes requested and resubmitted it. Ruth Tonkiss is on vacation so I won’t be able to get her final approval until after Thanksgiving, when I return on Tuesday next week we should be able to do the DAM on the finding aid and get it up online. Yay! The most interesting stuff in this collection has to do with the Bethlehem Steel Strike of 1910 and the little bit of research I did on who seemed to be the owner of most of these papers; Rev. Rockland T. Homans. I think I will focus my blog entry on these two things. I labeled the boxes (which are just 3 small boxes)
I began the inventory on my next collection State Council of Churches. It seems to mostly consist of bulletins from various state councils around the country. Shouldn’t be too difficult to organize. Amazingly I was able to complete the Work Plan and the Inventory.
November 25, 2012: Research on SCC. 2 hours
I brought home a couple of the books listed on my Work Plan and took some notes which I added to the bottom of the work plan. I’ll use these notes to develop the history portion of the finding aid. Hopefully the finding aid can be completed tomorrow. Then I can work on my FCC blog entry.
