Week 2 is wrapping up and we are all counting down to our first (but definitely not last) Rubenstein Move Happy Hour this evening!
What have we been up to this week? Well . . . .
First things first, literally. Here’s a video of Kat Stefko, Head of Technical Services, placing the very first archival box in our new stacks.
The shelves have started to fill up pretty quickly over the course of the week. And then it’s Technical Services’s turn to update the location information in our catalog.
We have found a couple of ways to keep ourselves motivated.
NUMBER ONE: So. Much. Candy.
Of course, we wash our hands carefully before we handle books or archival materials.
NUMBER TWO: Pieces of flair for our move aprons.
Made with the Duke Libraries’ very own button maker! (And thanks to our student worker Elizabeth George for making these excellent buttons!)
Our move brain trust, led by indefatigable move coordinator Liz Adams, keeps us all on task.
Nooooooo, bad shark! Don’t eat the rare books!
Seriously, this place is pretty cool and shiny. We can’t wait for everyone to come and visit in August!
Stop back next Friday for more photos!
