A good part of today was spent working on slides. Specifically, counting and organizing them. Back at SEA, we would sometimes scan slides into a computer but that doesn't seem to be the practice here. I wonder who will ever use these, but the imperative to preserve them anyhow continues.
I was thinking about attending the Society of American Archivists meeting in Chicago this year, but the expense killed the proposal. All told, I very much doubt that I could manage the trip for less than $1500 CAN. I wonder if many people get their Archives to pay to send them to such things?
