If you're going with the 20 dollar/10 dollar costs, I think the cost of
'reprocessing' should be 15 dollars instead of 10.  You are dealing with
additions to the collection which have to be totally processed and redoing
the finding aid is much harder than creating it from scratch.  Filing newer
material, misfiled material, and other things into an existing order is very
time consuming.
Averaging the number of files seems reasonable to me.  Best wishes to you!

Subject: Newsites...

----- Peter Kurilecz spake-----

Unfortunately that is the way the newssites are going. Two suggestions for
folks

1. create a common registration that you will use for all such sites. You
are NOT required to provide valid data. I use the same login and password
for all news sites.

2. use a service such as BugMeNot http://bugmenot.com/

------ reply ----

And if you follow Peter's other excellent suggestion, and use Firefox
http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/ (or Mozilla
http://www.mozilla.org/) for your browsing, you can get an extension at the
BugMeNot site so that the login details are a mere right-click away (or
control-click for Mac users).

Subject: locks of hair

Here are the responses I received to my query about locks of hair in
manuscript collections.  Again, thanks to everyone who shared their
experience and expertise.


<We have a couple of locks of hair in our rare books collection =96 a loc=
k of
Keats=92 hair, to be exact =96 from the library of Leigh Hunt.  It is mou=
nted
under isinglass and bound in book form, and is accompanied by a statement=
 of
provenance.

As for locks of hair in manuscript collections, I haven=92t ever come acr=
oss
one, but I would tend to keep it and have our conservation folks make an
appropriately sealed envelope for it.  As for a rationale=85  it=92s not
strictly archival and it has no research value whatsoever.  But I guess t=
his
is where the =93human=94 side of our collections comes in =96 I just woul=
dn=92t
throw away anything that intimate.


<I do not have a lock of hair  but a twelve inch queue of human hair worn=
 by
a missionary to China when he was =93in country=94 with his duties. Can=92=
t see
tossing it; it signified his desire to identify with his people. But it d=
oes
present questions!


<My inclination is to keep it with the letter  or photograph it came with=
,
or have it somewhere else in the collection and cross-referenced to the i=
tem
which it came with or has most significance  with.  I would definitely
encase it in a little bag or paper envelope of some sort.  I think that n=
ot
encasing it would be bad for the lock of hair but especially bad for the
items on which it touches in the collection.  I doubt 19th century hair i=
s
any better archivally-speaking than 20th century hair, but who knows?  Le=
ss
long-term chemical adjustments over time (example, trend/habit to dye hai=
r
now, add mouse, hairspray, etc.)


<Hair is just like fingernails only pliable.  Dead cells/ceratin.  As an
ex-hairdresser, there should be no problem having old locks around.
Just like the jewelry made from funereal hair, it is safe to wear and
have around.


<Speaking as someone who has recently taken some museum courses, I would
caution you against the usual archival methods of keeping materials.  We
have
all been taught that acid is bad and alkaline is good.

However, hair is, in museum parlance, "proteinaceous" material rather tha=
n
the
cellular stuff paper is made out of.  An acid environment is actually goo=
d
for
proteinaceous materials.  Plastic is not.  So go ahead and use that highl=
y
acidic tissue that came with your new shoes, or other acidic wrapper,
separate
the hair from the collection and put it with other proteinaceous material=
s
if
possible, in order to isolate these materials from your paper.  Leather i=
s
an
example of another proteinaceous material that should be treated differen=
tly
from paper (which is a paradoxical question when it comes to books, eh!).
Among other considerations, proteinaceous materials are home to different
kinds of pests that you will not want to attract to your paper.  Libraria=
ns
know all about that one!

As far as the hair's archival significance, the word "archives" is changi=
ng
in
meaning.  We are all archives of DNA, and at some time in the future some=
one
may be able to find out something about the former owner of the hair usin=
g
sophisticated testing on a tiny amount.  This has been true of historical
figures such as Napoleon, so why not your historical personality?


<In a previous life I was an archivist in the Manuscript Division of the
Library of Congress and that institution has as part of its Thomas Jeffer=
son
Papers a box containing many snippets of Jefferson's hair, probably cut b=
y
himself or his slave barbers at various times during his lifetime.  That
collection had been processed and re-processed several times by Library
staff over the years, at one time binding the manuscripts into volumes an=
d
more recently unbinding them and putting everything in standard archival
document cases.  But the container used to hold the hair snippets was, fr=
om
my perspective, a very poor choice.  It was a large, flat, and unwieldy b=
ox,
roughly about 20" wide by 16" deep by 1" high.  Apparently the conservato=
r
chose that box so that the hair snippets could be opened and shown attach=
ed
to an attractive display board to visiting VIPs and potential Library don=
ors
. . . The individual snippets of hair--from fine baby hair to gray hair i=
n
his old age--had at some time each been loosely bundled with thread and
labeled with dates, perhaps by the Jefferson family or by a nineteenth
century Library of Congress curator or a recent Library conservator.  Ove=
r
time and as the box was opened hastily and often for tours, which were
usually led informally by library administrators, hairs would come loose =
and
some entire snippets had eventually come unbound.  The last time I looked=
 in
that box it was a mess, looking more like a dustpan of hair from a
barbershop and pretty much worthless to anyone wanting to use it for
research or scientific analysis.  Where I am going with this is that in
hindsight, years ago the Library conservators should have placed each
snippet of Jefferson's hair as it had been originally wrapped with thread
and dated into an individual ziplock polypropylene bag or a glassine
envelope.  The bags could then have been labeled and either placed on the
display board and kept in the same unwieldy oversize box, or perhaps put
into a standard archival document box that would have better fit on the
shelves and used folders and standard archival finding aid documentation =
to
identify each snippet by date, bag number, and folder. . . . I think it i=
s
important that the hair samples be kept, that they be packaged either in
ziplock polypropylene bags or glassine envelopes, preferably stored
separately from and not inside books, or in the case of a letter behind i=
t
as an attachment, and that the two be linked with obvious labeling and a
good paper trail.


< We have some hair in our collection, and are simply isolating the whole
book.

http://www.nsula.edu/watson_library/hair/



<We actually have a significantly large collection of hair in our Max Fac=
tor
collection ranging from Frank Sinatra's  to Andy Griffith's to Elizabeth
Taylor's to Jimmy Stewart's, and even the Duke's (John Wayne)- yes,
sometimes the Duke needed a piece for a movie.  We joke that maybe someda=
y
we could clone our own spokespersons.

In terms of storage, our previous archivist decided to keep them in their
original paper envelopes within their original manila envelopes - all of
which contained information about the hair.  These are kept in several
Hollinger boxes in our collections area.  Although we never get them out,
they are definately some of the most unusual items we have.

Subject: NHPRC Action Alert

As you've recently heard, NHPRC has been "zeroed out" in the President's
budget.  No money at all for grants, no money for the administration of
NHPRC.  The Society of American Archivists (SAA), National Association
of Government Archivists and Records Administrators (NAGARA) and Council
of State Historical Records Coordinators (COSHRC) have formed a Joint
Task Force on Advocacy to take action collaboratively on this issues.
This effort also is being coordinated with the Association for
Documentary Editors and the National Coalition for History.

This group is developing an action plan which will be shared in more
detail, but for now there is an immediate need to take the first
step--Letters to the Senate and House Appropriations Committee urging
them to restore funding for NHPRC.  The committees begin meeting March
1, so letters need to go out this week.   Letters need to come from
people who have received NHPRC grants or from people who have benefited
from the projects--genealogists, local government officials, historians,
teachers, etc.  In particular, please look for people who may have
connections to the member of Congress, or try to get letters from the
head of a library, historical society, or government that got an NHPRC
grant.

Letters FAXED this week would be perfectly timed to get their
attention.  Email is not given much credence at this point because of
the amount that comes in, and land mail is irradiated, adding literally
weeks of time to receipt. So the mid-level Fax technology works best for
this.

More information about this effort, including guidelines for preparing
a letter and a list of the Senate and House Appropriations Committee
members may be found at the SAA website:

Subject: Civil Rights Archive donated to LOC

FYI:

>From the Library Journal Academic Newswire (TM)

AARP, LCCR DONATE CIVIL RIGHTS ARCHIVE TO LIBRARY OF
CONGRESS
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and the
Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR) have donated
an archive of more that 4,000 firsthand accounts of the
struggle for civil rights to the Library of Congress (LC).
The collection contains an array of firsthand written
accounts, audio and video interviews, and photographs. It
marks a milestone in the development of the Voices of
Civil Rights, a collaboration of AARP, LCCR, and LC.
Librarian of Congress James Billington said the collection
would both complement the LC's extensive collections of
civil rights materials and also add to its growing
collection of oral histories. The stories were contributed
by people of all backgrounds, gathered during the Voices
of Civil Rights Bus Tour, a 70-day, 12,000 mile journey
across America last summer. LC will continue to gather
personal accounts and expand the collection. An online
archive of personal stories, essays, interviews, videos
and photographs is accessible at
http://www.voicesofcivilrights.org/ .

Subject: Workshops on grant proposal writing for preservation and
digitization projects and managing photographic collections

Grant Proposal Writing for Preservation and Digitization
Projects: This one-day workshop (May 26), sponsored by
OCLC and taught by Tom Clareson focuses on preparing for
and writing grants for digitization and/or preservation
projects. The workshop includes matching your
institution's project with the appropriate funding agency
and preparing to write a proposal. The majority of the day
is spent covering the elements of a grant proposal with
hands-on practice in preparing a proposal. Evaluating
appropriate funding sources and project preparation will
also be covered.
Space is limited, and workshop is subject to cancellation
pending enough registrants. Costs: Registration postmarked
by April 15 - SSA members $85; non-members $95; students
$80. All fees increase by $15 after April 15.

Management of Photographic Collections: This workshop will
be taught by Laurie Baty and Martha Mahard- the same team
who teach the workshop for SAA. The two day workshop (May
25 and May 26) will help you administer photographic
collections effectively. Topics include identification and
dating of materials, recognizing special problems of
graphic materials, gaining control of large quantities of
materials, and identifying procedures for arrangement and
description, preservation, reference, and access. This
workshop will not specifically address digitization and
copyright issues. (Registraiton includes a pair of white
gloves and a microscope, which you will take with you.)
Space is limited, and workshop is subject to cancellation
pending enough registrants. Registration postmarked by
April 15: SSA members $185; non-members $200; students
$180. All fees increase by $25 after April 15.

Subject: Massachusetts Archival Consultant List

Due to an increasing demand for archival consultants the Massachusetts
Archives and the Massachusetts Historical Records Advisory Board are seeking
to expand its database of archival consultants names and contact
information.  This database (list) of names will be made available to anyone
looking for archival consultation. The database is not limited to
Massachusetts; consultants from neighboring states are encouraged to send
their information.

This is a good opportunity for those archivists who are looking for
full-time project work, as well as others who would like to share their
skills on a very limited, short-term basis.  The need is there.  We have had
many requests for this information from municipal governments, historical
societies and museums, and public libraries, to name a few.

In particular, the Documentary Heritage grant program, sponsored by the
Secretary of the Commonwealth, William Francis Galvin, and with a grant from
the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, is presently
reviewing potential fundable projects. The MHRAB anticipates to award
between 20-25 grants, with projects commencing in mid-summer 2005.

If you are interested please contact Bill Milhomme at

ret_tapes_2

"An old friend of President Bush who secretly recorded their private
conversations and released them to the media said he has regrets and is
turning the tapes over to Bush . . . . "Contrary to a statement that I made
to the New York Times, I have come to realize that personal relationships
are more important than history," Wead wrote in a letter. . . . "

Maarja's comment:  I dare say most of you shuddered when you read about Mr.
Wead secretly taping conversations.  I've never liked the practice of taping
when done without the consent and knowledge of all parties, unless there is
a darn good legal reason for doing it.

Subject: cost to process a collection

=20

I've been asked to calculate some estimates to finish processing one of
our collections (the non-political papers, photos, memorabilia, etc. of
a former politician) and to re-process another collection (political
papers and other material of a former politician). I'm to use my salary
and benefits to calculate the labor. But we're unsure of the amount of
time to use. One formula we've been told is 4 hours per linear foot.
Does that seem reasonable for processing additional boxes of papers and
other material, as well as updating the current finding aid?=20

=20

As for supplies for both collections, I can estimate the number of
record storage boxes we'd need - we use the legal by letter size
archival boxes. But I'm unsure of how many folders to estimate as an
average per box, as it can vary from 10 or 12 per box to 30 or 40. I
also need to guesstimate supplies for other formats, such as photos,
audio and visual material, and artwork. =20

=20

Re-processing may not be quite the right word for the one collection -
it's approximately 250-300 linear feet of political papers plus family
memorabilia, artwork, and other miscellaneous items. It was indexed
quite extensively 40 years ago, but the collection has undergone many
changes over the years. It needs to be re-housed in archival folders and
boxes and other storage containers. Also, the massive index needs to be
corrected and updated as the collection is worked through. Would the 4
hours per linear foot be a workable estimate for this type of project?
(In the handling of this collection, files have gotten out of order -
some may have been misfiled, but we're afraid that others have
disappeared forever.)

=20

Is there anything else we haven't thought of? Any suggestions and advice
will be greatly appreciated!

Subject: Re: cost to process a collection

Laurie,

   Four hours per foot seems awfully low to me. I would estimate closer to
20 per foot for the unprocessed group and ten per foot for the
reprocessing. You might look at our article in American Archivist:

"What is backlog is prologue: a measurement of archival processing," by
Terry Abraham, Stephen E. Balzarini, and Anne Frantilla. The American
Archivist, 48:1 (Winter 1985) 31-44.

  There have been a few other articles since.

I've always found the annual reports from the Billy Graham Center to be
especially helpful. try this link as it has a variety of statistics related
to processing

Laurie,

            Bruce Stark has published some estimates of processing rates in
his 2001 __Guide For Processing Manuscripts Collections__ (pp. 53-54), which
I've found very useful.  While acknowledging that processing rates differ
from collection to collection, he identifies four categories of collections
with descending processing rates relative to the complexity of the material.
The range is broad:  from 40 hours per linear foot for collections that have
to be described at the item level to 10 hours per linear foot for
collections that have no significant organizational problems and mainly need
reboxing, refoldering, listing, and describing of the contents of the
papers.  Four hours per linear foot does not seem reasonable to me for
processing any collection on average.

Subject: cost to process a collection



I've been asked to calculate some estimates to finish processing one of our
collections (the non-political papers, photos, memorabilia, etc. of a former
politician) and to re-process another collection (political papers and other
material of a former politician). I'm to use my salary and benefits to
calculate the labor. But we're unsure of the amount of time to use. One
formula we've been told is 4 hours per linear foot. Does that seem
reasonable for processing additional boxes of papers and other material, as
well as updating the current finding aid?



As for supplies for both collections, I can estimate the number of record
storage boxes we'd need - we use the legal by letter size archival boxes.
But I'm unsure of how many folders to estimate as an average per box, as it
can vary from 10 or 12 per box to 30 or 40. I also need to guesstimate
supplies for other formats, such as photos, audio and visual material, and
artwork.



Re-processing may not be quite the right word for the one collection - it's
approximately 250-300 linear feet of political papers plus family
memorabilia, artwork, and other miscellaneous items. It was indexed quite
extensively 40 years ago, but the collection has undergone many changes over
the years. It needs to be re-housed in archival folders and boxes and other
storage containers. Also, the massive index needs to be corrected and
updated as the collection is worked through. Would the 4 hours per linear
foot be a workable estimate for this type of project? (In the handling of
this collection, files have gotten out of order - some may have been
misfiled, but we're afraid that others have disappeared forever.)



Is there anything else we haven't thought of? Any suggestions and advice
will be greatly appreciated!

For Immediate Release

Date:   February 24, 2005

Lloyd Library and Museum Announces Expanded and Enhanced Website

The Lloyd Library and Museum is pleased to announce important additions
and enhancements to its website.  New features include databases never
before available and now accessed only on our website.  They are the
Eclectic Medical Journal Index, created by the Lloyd Staff, and
Pharmacists in World War II, created and maintained by Lloyd Scholar,
Dennis Worthen, in conjunction with his book, Pharmacy in World War II.
The Eclectic Medical Journal Index is the only one available for this
Cincinnati publication and indexes its entire run of 97 volumes
published from 1849 to 1937.  Pharmacists in World War II includes over
11,000 pharmacists, pharmacy students, and those returning from the
military on the GI Bill.
Also new is our first online exhibit-a virtual representation of the
Lloyd's successful 2003-2004 exhibit Mining the Lloyd: Book Artists
Reveal Secrets and Treasures from the Lloyd Library and Museum.  The
Lloyd collaborated with local artists Susan Brumm and Diane Stemper in
inviting book artists to choose a text from the library's collection and
use it as an inspiration for a new creation.  The online exhibit is a
reproduction of the exhibit catalog and features color photographs of
the artists' books, their statements, and the title of the Lloyd text
that inspired the work.  Introductions from co-curators, Brumm and
Stemper, explore the relationship between science and art, making the
case for a visual arts display within a scientific context.
Another improvement has recently been negotiated with the University of
Cincinnati Libraries that makes searching Lloyd's holdings through UC's
online catalog easier for our patrons.  Accessed from our website,
Lloyd's catalog records have been available through UC's UCLID online
catalog for several years, although up until recently it was not
possible to search only Lloyd holdings.  One can now change location to
the Lloyd Library and Museum before searching, which eliminates holdings
from other UC libraries or affiliates and returns results only from the
Lloyd.
Other enhancements have been made to simplify access and provide for
more content.  For instance, there is a separate section for Lloyd news
which includes information about events and exhibits, feature articles
and headlines, as well as all press releases issued from the Lloyd.
There is also an expanded section for the Lloyd Scholar with more
information about his publications, projects, activities, and a
biographical sketch.  Our history found in "About Us" now includes all
Lloyd Showcases written by our scholar, which provide supplementary
chapters of the library's past, highlighting several different
biographical aspects of founder John Uri Lloyd.
For more information about the Lloyd Library and Museum, see below.

            The Lloyd Library and Museum, located at 917 Plum Street,
downtown Cincinnati, is a local and regional treasure.  The library was
developed in the nineteenth century by the Lloyd Brothers-John Uri,
Curtis Gates, and Nelson Ashley.  Incorporated in 1898, its original
purpose was to provide a reference and research facility for Lloyd
Brothers Pharmacists, Inc., one of the leading pharmaceutical companies
of the period.  A trust was established in 1919 to guarantee that the
library would continue to fulfill its mission "to collect and maintain a
library on botanical, medical, pharmaceutical, and scientific books and
periodicals and works of allied sciences" into the future.  The
library's operations are still supported by that trust and today, the
Lloyd Library and Museum is recognized worldwide by the scientific
community as a vital research center.  Housing hundreds of thousands of
volumes on the subjects of pharmacy, botany, horticulture, herbal and
alternative medicines, natural products, homeopathy, and eclectic
medicine, the Lloyd maintains a vast collection of scientific texts-from
the most current works to those that date back hundreds of years.
Included in this rare book collection is an original copy of the
ten-volume Flora Greca (1840) by John Sibthorp, an original copy of
Elizabeth Blackwell's A Curious Herbal (1739), Mesue Vulgare (a 1493
"common book" of remedies), and an array of rare European texts from the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.  The Lloyd also houses archival
collections, including the papers of John Uri Lloyd, Curtis Gates Lloyd,
Lloyd Brothers Pharmacists, Inc., and the Eclectic Medical College of
Cincinnati.  Free parking is available behind the library building.  For

Subject: Re: cost to process a collection

I would say your estimate should be a minimum of 10 hours per foot for
what we term "full" processing.  For full processing, we arrange the
materials in the collection, re-box and re-folder everything using
lignin-free/acid-free archival supplies, remove all metal fasteners such
as staples and paperclips, remove rubber bands, photocopy all newsprint
and thermofaxes, etc., separate and encapsulate all photos, separate
audio-visual media, artifacts, and similar types of items, and re-label
all new folders and boxes.  Then we do the finding aids.  This is
extremely time consuming.

Laurie,

   Four hours per foot seems awfully low to me. I would estimate closer
to 20 per foot for the unprocessed group and ten per foot for the
reprocessing. You might look at our article in American Archivist:

"What is backlog is prologue: a measurement of archival processing," by
Terry Abraham, Stephen E. Balzarini, and Anne Frantilla. The American
Archivist, 48:1 (Winter 1985) 31-44.

  There have been a few other articles since.

For Immediate Release

Date:   February 24, 2005

Lloyd Library and Museum Announces Expanded and Enhanced Website

The Lloyd Library and Museum is pleased to announce important additions
and enhancements to its website.  New features include databases never
before available and now accessed only on our website.  They are the
Eclectic Medical Journal Index, created by the Lloyd Staff, and
Pharmacists in World War II, created and maintained by Lloyd Scholar,
Dennis Worthen, in conjunction with his book, Pharmacy in World War II.
The Eclectic Medical Journal Index is the only one available for this
Cincinnati publication and indexes its entire run of 97 volumes
published from 1849 to 1937.  Pharmacists in World War II includes over
11,000 pharmacists, pharmacy students, and those returning from the
military on the GI Bill.
Also new is our first online exhibit-a virtual representation of the
Lloyd's successful 2003-2004 exhibit Mining the Lloyd: Book Artists
Reveal Secrets and Treasures from the Lloyd Library and Museum.  The
Lloyd collaborated with local artists Susan Brumm and Diane Stemper in
inviting book artists to choose a text from the library's collection and
use it as an inspiration for a new creation.  The online exhibit is a
reproduction of the exhibit catalog and features color photographs of
the artists' books, their statements, and the title of the Lloyd text
that inspired the work.  Introductions from co-curators, Brumm and
Stemper, explore the relationship between science and art, making the
case for a visual arts display within a scientific context.
Another improvement has recently been negotiated with the University of
Cincinnati Libraries that makes searching Lloyd's holdings through UC's
online catalog easier for our patrons.  Accessed from our website,
Lloyd's catalog records have been available through UC's UCLID online
catalog for several years, although up until recently it was not
possible to search only Lloyd holdings.  One can now change location to
the Lloyd Library and Museum before searching, which eliminates holdings
from other UC libraries or affiliates and returns results only from the
Lloyd.
Other enhancements have been made to simplify access and provide for
more content.  For instance, there is a separate section for Lloyd news
which includes information about events and exhibits, feature articles
and headlines, as well as all press releases issued from the Lloyd.
There is also an expanded section for the Lloyd Scholar with more
information about his publications, projects, activities, and a
biographical sketch.  Our history found in "About Us" now includes all
Lloyd Showcases written by our scholar, which provide supplementary
chapters of the library's past, highlighting several different
biographical aspects of founder John Uri Lloyd.
For more information about the Lloyd Library and Museum, see below.

            The Lloyd Library and Museum, located at 917 Plum Street,
downtown Cincinnati, is a local and regional treasure.  The library was
developed in the nineteenth century by the Lloyd Brothers-John Uri,
Curtis Gates, and Nelson Ashley.  Incorporated in 1898, its original
purpose was to provide a reference and research facility for Lloyd
Brothers Pharmacists, Inc., one of the leading pharmaceutical companies
of the period.  A trust was established in 1919 to guarantee that the
library would continue to fulfill its mission "to collect and maintain a
library on botanical, medical, pharmaceutical, and scientific books and
periodicals and works of allied sciences" into the future.  The
library's operations are still supported by that trust and today, the
Lloyd Library and Museum is recognized worldwide by the scientific
community as a vital research center.  Housing hundreds of thousands of
volumes on the subjects of pharmacy, botany, horticulture, herbal and
alternative medicines, natural products, homeopathy, and eclectic
medicine, the Lloyd maintains a vast collection of scientific texts-from
the most current works to those that date back hundreds of years.
Included in this rare book collection is an original copy of the
ten-volume Flora Greca (1840) by John Sibthorp, an original copy of
Elizabeth Blackwell's A Curious Herbal (1739), Mesue Vulgare (a 1493
"common book" of remedies), and an array of rare European texts from the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.  The Lloyd also houses archival
collections, including the papers of John Uri Lloyd, Curtis Gates Lloyd,
Lloyd Brothers Pharmacists, Inc., and the Eclectic Medical College of
Cincinnati.  Free parking is available behind the library building.  For
more information about the Lloyd Library and Museum, please visit our

Hi Laurie -=20
We do this all the time in our business, as we have to calculate what to =
charge our clients for our services. For processing, it really depends =
on what you're doing wth the material. Sure, you can always spend 20 =
hours per linear foot on any archival collection, but is it worth it - =
does the value, age, or condition of the material merit spending that =
much time on it? There's a cost-benefit analysis to make. We all have to =
make these decisions and consider several factors, for example:
=20
Are you removing every staple and paperclip, sleeving every photograph, =
photocopying every clipping and Post-It note? Are you putting everything =
into strict chronological order day by day, or just year by year? Are =
you processing at the item level or folder level? Are you entering the =
records into an electronic database? It may be more important to do some =
of these things than others. In an ideal world, yes, we'd love to do all =
of them, but we would not be spending our employers' money, or our own =
valuable time, very efficiently if we do. Maybe you decide only to =
remove those staples that are already rusty. Maybe you decide only to =
sleeve those photographs that are in bad condition. All of these things =
will drastically effect your time not to mention your supply budget.=20
=20
How detailed are your descriptions - are they several paragraphs long =
for each folder, or a simple sentence? Are the materials cogently =
arranged already, or do you have to come up with your own descriptions =
and arrangement? Who will be using the collection in the future, and how =
much detail will they need to help them find materials?
=20
As a very general rule of thumb, we say to our clients that ON AVERAGE =
it takes us 6 hours per linear foot to both process and catalog (data =
entry into database) archival materials. But this really, really varies =
- some boxes DO take 20 hours to process and there's just no getting =
around it. If that happens, then you just have to make sure that some =
other boxes only take an hour to process to balance it out. Or you work =
overtime. :) =20
=20
It sounds to me like your collection is fairly well organized already - =
a lot of what you're doing is refining and refiling - so the 4 hours per =
linear foot to process might be quite workable.
=20
Best,

Subject: cost to process a collection



I've been asked to calculate some estimates to finish processing one of =
our collections (the non-political papers, photos, memorabilia, etc. of =
a former politician) and to re-process another collection (political =
papers and other material of a former politician). I'm to use my salary =
and benefits to calculate the labor. But we're unsure of the amount of =
time to use. One formula we've been told is 4 hours per linear foot. =
Does that seem reasonable for processing additional boxes of papers and =
other material, as well as updating the current finding aid?=20

=20

As for supplies for both collections, I can estimate the number of =
record storage boxes we'd need - we use the legal by letter size =
archival boxes. But I'm unsure of how many folders to estimate as an =
average per box, as it can vary from 10 or 12 per box to 30 or 40. I =
also need to guesstimate supplies for other formats, such as photos, =
audio and visual material, and artwork. =20

=20

Re-processing may not be quite the right word for the one collection - =
it's approximately 250-300 linear feet of political papers plus family =
memorabilia, artwork, and other miscellaneous items. It was indexed =
quite extensively 40 years ago, but the collection has undergone many =
changes over the years. It needs to be re-housed in archival folders and =
boxes and other storage containers. Also, the massive index needs to be =
corrected and updated as the collection is worked through. Would the 4 =
hours per linear foot be a workable estimate for this type of project? =
(In the handling of this collection, files have gotten out of order - =
some may have been misfiled, but we're afraid that others have =
disappeared forever.)

=20

Is there anything else we haven't thought of? Any suggestions and advice =
will be greatly appreciated!

Well, since everyone is on this particular topic, does anyone have any
method of measuring the processing of electronic records?

I'm thinking collections with email, web sites, databases and the like.
Is it possible to "translate" electronic records processing to cubic
feet? Or do we need a new way of applying a meaningful measurement to
electronic collections processing?

Have found myself more confounded by this than anything and am happy to
hear all comments, questions, thoughts, etc. about it.
Thanks,=20

I would recommend reading Tom Wilsted's booklet,Computing the Total
Cost of Archival Processing, Technical leaflet No.2,(Mid-Atlantic
Regional  Archives Conference: N.p., 1989)=20

There is also a brief discussion of some of the relevant literature in
Paul Ericksen and my article, Shocks:  The Place of Processing Cost
Analysis in Archival Administration"  in the  American Archivist. Vol.
58, No.1,  Winter 1995

Some of our experience at the BGC Archives on calculating processing
costs (including labor, materials, storage) can be found online at: =20
http://www.wheaton.edu/bgc/archives/ar/2004/17.html=20

Our average for eleven years, including all types of collections, was
7.4  hours per cubic foot, $181 per cubic foot.  You might also want
segregate  the different types of processing you are doing, since costs
can differ widely depending on whether you are processing a huge
collection of  hundreds or thousands of boxes, updating an existing
collection, adding a  few individual items to a collection, working on a
collecting that includes  oral history interviews as well as other types
of material, etc.=20

Hi Laurie,
I was curious about your estimate of 10 or 12 folders to 30 or 40 folders
per box.  We recently finished processing a large political papers
collection, and it seemed to me there were more folders per box, so I did a
quick estimate.  We also use the legal by letter record center boxes, and we
use letter size folders (for just about everything except some newspaper
clippings).  Our average is 40 folders per box, with a low of 20 and a high
of 101.  I suppose if you use legal folders you might have only 10 folders
in a box, but that struck me as really low.  I know some of our collections
have an average more around 50 folders per box.  I think if I had both legal
and letter size folders I would estimate them separately.

Just some thoughts.  Interesting discussion!

Of Laurie Langland
Sent: Wednesday, February 23, 2005 8:20 PM

Subject: cost to process a collection



I've been asked to calculate some estimates to finish processing one of our
collections (the non-political papers, photos, memorabilia, etc. of a former
politician) and to re-process another collection (political papers and other
material of a former politician). I'm to use my salary and benefits to
calculate the labor. But we're unsure of the amount of time to use. One
formula we've been told is 4 hours per linear foot. Does that seem
reasonable for processing additional boxes of papers and other material, as
well as updating the current finding aid?



As for supplies for both collections, I can estimate the number of record
storage boxes we'd need - we use the legal by letter size archival boxes.
But I'm unsure of how many folders to estimate as an average per box, as it
can vary from 10 or 12 per box to 30 or 40. I also need to guesstimate
supplies for other formats, such as photos, audio and visual material, and
artwork.



Re-processing may not be quite the right word for the one collection - it's
approximately 250-300 linear feet of political papers plus family
memorabilia, artwork, and other miscellaneous items. It was indexed quite
extensively 40 years ago, but the collection has undergone many changes over
the years. It needs to be re-housed in archival folders and boxes and other
storage containers. Also, the massive index needs to be corrected and
updated as the collection is worked through. Would the 4 hours per linear
foot be a workable estimate for this type of project? (In the handling of
this collection, files have gotten out of order - some may have been
misfiled, but we're afraid that others have disappeared forever.)



Is there anything else we haven't thought of? Any suggestions and advice
will be greatly appreciated!

some
estimates to finish processing one of our collections (the non-political
papers,
photos, memorabilia, etc. of a former politician) and to re-process another
collection (political papers and other material of a former politician).
I&#8217;m to
use my salary and benefits to calculate the labor. But we&#8217;re unsure of
the
amount of time to use. One formula we&#8217;ve been told is 4 hours per
linear foot.
Does that seem reasonable for processing additional boxes of papers and
other
material, as well as updating the current finding aid? </SPAN></FONT></P>

many folders
to estimate as an average per box, as it can vary from 10 or 12 per box to
30 or
40. I also need to guesstimate supplies for other formats, such as photos,
audio

the
right word for the one collection &#8211; it&#8217;s approximately 250-300
linear feet of
political papers plus family memorabilia, artwork, and other miscellaneous
items. It was indexed quite extensively 40 years ago, but the collection has
undergone many changes over the years. It needs to be re-housed in archival
folders and boxes and other storage containers. Also, the massive index
needs to
be corrected and updated as the collection is worked through. Would the 4
hours
per linear foot be a workable estimate for this type of project? (In the
handling of this collection, files have gotten out of order &#8211; some may
have been
misfiled, but we&#8217;re afraid that others have disappeared

I think bytes (kilobytes, megabytes, etc.) is a common and meaningful
way of quantifying the volume of digital data, since it has to be stored
on media with finite capacity (that is usually quantified in x-bytes --
a 40 gb hard drive, or a 700 mb CD-ROM, etc.)
=20
But if your dealing with a large quantity of digital data on physical
storage media (say, a collection of 100 CD-ROMs) the physical volume is
pertinent as well.

Well, since everyone is on this particular topic, does anyone have any
method of measuring the processing of electronic records?

I'm thinking collections with email, web sites, databases and the like.
Is it possible to "translate" electronic records processing to cubic
feet? Or do we need a new way of applying a meaningful measurement to
electronic collections processing?
=20
Have found myself more confounded by this than anything and am happy to
hear all comments, questions, thoughts, etc. about it.
Thanks,=20

I would recommend reading Tom Wilsted's booklet,Computing the Total
Cost of Archival Processing, Technical leaflet No.2,(Mid-Atlantic
Regional  Archives Conference: N.p., 1989)=20

There is also a brief discussion of some of the relevant literature in
Paul Ericksen and my article, Shocks:  The Place of Processing Cost
Analysis in Archival Administration"  in the  American Archivist. Vol.
58, No.1,  Winter 1995

Some of our experience at the BGC Archives on calculating processing
costs (including labor, materials, storage) can be found online at: =20
http://www.wheaton.edu/bgc/archives/ar/2004/17.html=20

Our average for eleven years, including all types of collections, was
7.4  hours per cubic foot, $181 per cubic foot.  You might also want
segregate  the different types of processing you are doing, since costs
can differ widely depending on whether you are processing a huge
collection of  hundreds or thousands of boxes, updating an existing
collection, adding a  few individual items to a collection, working on a
collecting that includes  oral history interviews as well as other types
of material, etc.=20

Thanks, Kathy, and to everyone else for their helpful replies. Most have
been posted to the list, with only a couple to me off-list. I plan to
compile those and share them anonymously in the near future.

To answer Kathy's question, we use legal-size folders. Oftentimes in the
re-housing, the folders have to be expanded to their one-inch-thick
capacity, so one box fills up very quickly. It's varied from one extreme
to the other, though.

Hi Laurie,

I was curious about your estimate of 10 or 12 folders to 30 or 40
folders per box.  We recently finished processing a large political
papers collection, and it seemed to me there were more folders per box,
so I did a quick estimate.  We also use the legal by letter record
center boxes, and we use letter size folders (for just about everything
except some newspaper clippings).  Our average is 40 folders per box,
with a low of 20 and a high of 101.  I suppose if you use legal folders
you might have only 10 folders in a box, but that struck me as really
low.  I know some of our collections have an average more around 50
folders per box.  I think if I had both legal and letter size folders I
would estimate them separately.

=20

Just some thoughts.  Interesting discussion!

I wonder if we are not confusing what the archival supply catalogs refer
to as record storage boxes (15x12x10) with document cases (letter size
12.25x10.25x5 and legal size, 15.25x10.25x5).  The former will hold
upwards of 25 folders, depending upon whether they are legal or letter,
while the latter holds 8-15 folders.
=20
For what it's worth, the standard for processing that I always followed
was that it was possible to completely process 1 cubic foot of records
in 8 hours on average.

        I've been asked to calculate some estimates to finish processing
one of our collections (the non-political papers, photos, memorabilia,
etc. of a former politician) and to re-process another collection
(political papers and other material of a former politician). I'm to use
my salary and benefits to calculate the labor. But we're unsure of the
amount of time to use. One formula we've been told is 4 hours per linear
foot. Does that seem reasonable for processing additional boxes of
papers and other material, as well as updating the current finding aid?=20

        =20

        As for supplies for both collections, I can estimate the number
of record storage boxes we'd need - we use the legal by letter size
archival boxes. But I'm unsure of how many folders to estimate as an
average per box, as it can vary from 10 or 12 per box to 30 or 40. I
also need to guesstimate supplies for other formats, such as photos,
audio and visual material, and artwork. =20

        =20

        Re-processing may not be quite the right word for the one
collection - it's approximately 250-300 linear feet of political papers
plus family memorabilia, artwork, and other miscellaneous items. It was
indexed quite extensively 40 years ago, but the collection has undergone
many changes over the years. It needs to be re-housed in archival
folders and boxes and other storage containers. Also, the massive index
needs to be corrected and updated as the collection is worked through.
Would the 4 hours per linear foot be a workable estimate for this type
of project? (In the handling of this collection, files have gotten out
of order - some may have been misfiled, but we're afraid that others
have disappeared forever.)

        =20

        Is there anything else we haven't thought of? Any suggestions
and advice will be greatly appreciated!

We use record storage boxes from Metal Edge that measure approximately =
15 3/4x13 1/4x10 =BD. If the original folder being re-housed is an inch =
thick, it will be re-housed using one archival folder expanded to one =
inch. Since we use legal-size folders, that can fill up those 12-13 =
inches pretty quickly, hence my low estimate.

I wonder if we are not confusing what the archival supply catalogs refer =
to as record storage boxes (15x12x10) with document cases (letter size =
12.25x10.25x5 and legal size, 15.25x10.25x5).  The former will hold =
upwards of 25 folders, depending upon whether they are legal or letter, =
while the latter holds 8-15 folders.

=20

For what it's worth, the standard for processing that I always followed =
was that it was possible to completely process 1 cubic foot of records =
in 8 hours on average.

COURT VIEWS SECRECY AND PRESS CONFIDENTIALITY

"Secrecy may well be seen as the enemy of freedom when it conceals
facts important to public understanding," wrote Judge Robert W.
Sweet of the Southern District of New York in a decision today.

Moreover, he opined, "Secrecy in government appears to be on the
increase."

The decision came down in the case of New York Times v. Gonzales
and addressed the question of whether the Times was obliged to
surrender certain confidential telephone records sought by the
government as part of a leak probe.  The judge concluded that the
Times could continue to withhold the records.

See a copy of the 121 page ruling here:

    http://www.fas.org/sgp/jud/nyt022405.pdf


AGENCY PUBLIC AFFAIRS OFFICES SWELL

The number of public affairs officers in federal agencies has
increased markedly in the past four years, Newsday reported today.

Newsday analyzed government personnel records and found that "The
staffs that handle public relations for government agencies grew
even faster than the federal work force."

But does that mean that public access to government information has
grown correspondingly?

To the contrary.  "At the same time the White House tightened its
control over messages to the news media and restricted access to
public information."

See "Cadre Grows to Rein in Message" by Tom Brune, Newsday,
February 24:

SELECTED BUSH, CLINTON PRESIDENTIAL RECORDS OPEN

The National Archives and Records Administration has announced the
opening of selected documentary records from the papers of former
presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton.

"Approximately 9,700 pages of George H.W. Bush Presidential records
that were previously withheld under the Presidential Records Act
restrictions for appointments to federal office and/or
confidential advice are now open for research," NARA said in a
February 18 news release.

    http://www.fas.org/sgp/news/2005/02/nara021805.html

Meanwhile, "The William J. Clinton Presidential Library ... Is
making over 100,000 pages of Clinton presidential records
available for research. They represent the first public release of
Clinton presidential records since the end of the Clinton
Administration," according to another NARA news release.

    http://www.fas.org/sgp/news/2005/02/nara022205.html

Public access to records of former presidents remains a subject of
some controversy due to a November 2001 executive order by
President George W. Bush which made it easier to curtail such
access.


ARMY LAW ENFORCEMENT INVESTIGATION MANUAL

What is the proper method to obtain fingerprints from a corpse?

A newly issued U.S. Army field manual on law enforcement
investigations explains that (page 20-9) and much more.  The
manual, intended for military police and other military
investigators, reviews the basics of investigative procedure, from
the crime scene to the interrogation of witnesses.

See "Law Enforcement Investigations," Field Manual 3-19.13,
Department of the Army, January 2005 (in an extremely large 22 MB
PDF file, 507 pages):

As I review these various answers on how long it takes to process a
collection I got to thinking;

What are the exact steps used in processing a collection? (assume the
collection contains only paper, letter size only). One should be able to
provide a general estimate for processing a collection if all the steps are
known. What is unknown is the time associated with each step of the
process. Until the exact steps are known comparing one processing time to
another is useless like comparing apples to oranges.

so what are the steps involved in processing a collection? If there is a
standard set of steps that would be great.

Subject: supplies and cost of processing

The costs associated with housing and supplies for archival collections
varies by project and institution.  When I was processing a collection
of congressional papers, I found I could put close to 250 letter size
folders of speeches in a Hollinger transfer box, or as few as 10
folders/box when dealing with large subject files.  Close to $50,000
was spent on just supplies in less than 2 years - boxes, folders, and
mylar to re-house 1027 boxes of material.

We recently came across what appear to be several dictaphone belts, which
we believe carry an interview from 1963, which it would be nice to be able
to capture and preserve.  Anyone have any ideas about where we might start
to investigate if these could be played at all?

Subject: Collection Maintenance

I was wondering if ya'll could help me.  I'm looking into
reasons why a medium sized university archives may want to
close it's doors for a week to do maintenance and inventory of
the collections and books.  (This is to present to the
administration)

If you have any comments, statistics or articles I would
greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Subject: Fw: [SGAList] Hart scholarship deadline extended to March
2****Timely Reminder*****

Good Colleagues All, Good Afternoon!

            Because of the vagueries of the U.S. Mail and some perhaps
imprecise language in our earlier mailing, we have extended the deadline for
applying for the Carroll Hart Scholarship to the Georgia Archives Institute.
The *FINAL* extension is that all materials related to your application
*MUST* be in my hands no later than 5:00 PM (EST) Wednesday, March 2, 2005.

    If anyone has questions about the process, they are invited to contact
me quickly at the address below.

            Best Regards,   Gilbert Head,   Chair,   SGA Scholarship
Committee

While we're on the subject of antique recording devices, I'd like to mention
my current situation...

Yesterday a gentleman brought me a recording device that he believes
belonged to his wife's parents.  He came across it in cleaning out the house
(to move into smaller quarters).  He couldn't tell me much about it except
he thinks that his deceased wife's parents originally owned it.

Yes, this is one of those wire recorders.  Comes with a small collection of
wire reels, a few of which are labeled and may have recordings on them.
Today a local gentleman helped me with reattaching the wires that go to the
headphones.  Everything appears to be in order, the lights come on when
plugged in, and the play/playback/rewind switch clearly works.  I just can't
figure out how to put the wire in/through it.  (Actually, I'm making the
dangerous assumption that one does put the wire through it.)

There's no brand name or model number that I can find.  But except for
having to reattach the headphone to its cord, it seems to be in mint
condition.

Now what?  We're all dying (okay, maybe not quite, but definitely anxious)
to listen to this stuff.

Any ideas?

Hello all.  I've volunteered to run a roommate register for people seeking
somebody to share rooms at our joint CIMA/NWA/RMA/SCA conference in April.
Deadline on the conference rates for rooms is coming up soon so if you're
looking for somebody to share with, please contact me and I'll start getting
people in touch with each other.  Email me at [log in to unmask] and put
"Vegas Roommates" in the subject line.  Your email should include your name,
email address, phone number, gender and smoking preferences, and the dates
for which you'll be needing a room.



Thanks and hope to see many of you there!

Better still, I can smell them just from the image--or at least some narc=

Thanks from me too.

Digital memories: we can forget them for you wholesale!
By Andrew Orlowski (andrew.orlowski at theregister.co.uk)
Published Monday 21st February 2005 16:59 GMT
Analysis A Brazilian activist, who we'll keep nameless, had been
keeping your reporter up to date with his work. He
was on a mission to install computers in rural areas of the country,
but hadn't been able to offer a single reason why
anyone should use one - let alone why the communities should be getting
computers rather than say, a new school,
or a credit union, or better transport links, or even a voice network.

A brazen plot doomed to fail
How four friends went from college classrooms to a federal courtroom
By Sarah Vos
HERALD-LEADER STAFF WRITER
Four days before Christmas, two young men, one wearing a red tie, the
other in a yellow suit jacket, arrived at
Christie's, the famed New York auction house, claiming to represent a
very private collector. "Mr. Beckman,"
they told a woman in the manuscript division, wanted to sell some rare
books.

Breach Points Up Flaws in Privacy Laws
By TOM ZELLER Jr.
The recently disclosed privacy breach at the data collection giant
ChoicePoint, in which con artists
gained access to the Social Security numbers, addresses and other
personal data of nearly 145,000
people, has exposed the shortcomings of the laws governing the
data-mining industry and consumer
privacy.

*       Is your work is mounting but there's no budget for paid
employees?

*       Ever wondered where to find all those enthusiastic volunteers
you're sure are somewhere - just not in your archives?

*       Do your volunteers come once or twice and you never hear from
them again?

The Society of Southwest Archivists is presenting a one-day workshop,
"Recruiting, Utilizing, and Nurturing Volunteers in Archives," on
Monday, March 21, 2005 from 10:00 - 3:00 at the Austin History Center,
Austin, Texas.  The presenters, Sarah Canby Jackson, Julie Holcomb,
Sharon Edwards, and Eric Travis have extensive experience working with
volunteers.  Carole Davenport and Missy Ivey from Navarro College will
join the presenters in a panel discussion at the end of the workshop.

The cost of the workshop is $15.00 and includes a box lunch.  The
registration deadline is Monday, March 14 and must include payment.

Please check on the SSA Website  <http://www.southwestarchivists.org>
