June Progress Report

for a larger image of this unique drawing of a spiral staircase, click here. The Architectural Drawing Collection is still in process, and we anticipate having over 2,000 drawings of approximately 150 different structures available for use by the SPSU community this fall.

This June, both the Archivist and the Cataloger attended workshops on the new descriptive standard for archives that is endorsed by the Society of American Archivists. We'll be using this standard, along with Library of Congress MARC records to provide access information to those wishing to use the architectural drawing collection this fall. Due to space restrictions, access will be limited to SPSU students, faculty, and staff until renovations to the existing archives space occur.
