The Legislative Paper Processing Project at State Library
For each collection, their work includes biographical research on the legislator; an initial survey of the unprocessed papers; writing a processing plan, including deciding on series and arrangement; sorting the papers; re-housing materials when necessary; writing a finding aid; creating a record for our online catalog; and depositing the finding aid in our digital repository, DSpace. They will also write a blog post for each completed collection.
Watch our blog for information about the collections as they become available for research. The staff of the Special Collections Department will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
