Creating a Finding Aid

Hello Everyone,

Again, not much to report this week. I have been spending
the week working on the finding aid for the Woman’s Club of Claremont collection.
I have been writing the series and collection scope and content notes. These
notes summarize what is in the collection. It was more difficult than I thought
it was going to be. I found myself having to go back to my box survey, as well
as the records boxes themselves, to formulate how I was going to summarize the
contents and what I was going to include in the scope and content notes. I
began with the series scope and content notes and will finish those and move on
to the collection scope and content notes next week. There is a lot to learn
and I am really enjoying the journey. Have a great weekend!
