Supervising Librarian/Archivist
Name: Marnie Bailey

Purpose of the project:
Our law firm is 135 years old, and has a paper/photo archive that we would like to organize. We have had the print and photos scanned and would like a proper, accessible, organized archive to be viewed and used by the firm.

Summary of activities required to carry out the project:

  • Review the scans of the current print contents (photo albums, loose photos, letters, letterhead, firm retreat documents, scripts from firm presentations, and other images)
  • Create metadata tags for the electronic contents and tag with metadata
  • Arrange in an accessible manner to be viewed and used by firm members (likely Sharepoint, but other options are possible based on the suggestion of the student)

Expectations of the end result of the project, for both host and student:

An accessible history of the firm.

Time periods in which the project could be supervised:

  • Winter Term 1 (September – December)
  • Winter Term 2 (January – April)

Is there a deadline by which the project must be completed?

There is no deadline – the scans will be complete mid-summer.

Considering the project requirements, please suggest suitable coursework as pre-requisite or co-requisite:

Completion of the LIBR or ARST core courses.
