Always wondered what is involved in processing an archival collection? Want to know the best things we’ve come across in our collections? Are you still hanging on to a very special mix tape from high school and want to make sure it stays well-preserved? Wondering what’s up with the white gloves? Or just curious about what goes on behind the scenes at archives?
Today is the day to ask! On October 30, archivists around the country will take to Twitter to answer your questions about any and all things archives!
To participate, just tweet a question and include the hashtag #AskAnArchivist in your tweet. Your question will be seen instantly by archivists around the country who are standing by to respond. If you want to hear from us here at the Rubenstein specifically, include our handle @RubensteinLib. We may not know every answer right away, but we’ll get back to you after we’ve had a chance to do some digging!
