Zsr specical collections & archives visits moravian archives Presentation Transcript

  • 1. ZSR Special Collections & Archives Visits Moravian Archives Winston Salem
  • 2. Rebecca Peterson (left) arranged the visit and tour with Nicole Blum Crabbe (right). The greenish glow is from the UV blocking lights.
  • 3. The facility is less than 10 years old and was planned with punctilious care to facilitate routine functions, to safeguard materials and maintain efficient order. The staff is small (3). The collection is one of only two Moravian archives in the US.
  • 4. Processing Space I: The Isolation RoomHere is where items received from individuals and institutions are examined if suspected of mold or bugs; and are allowed to rest and stabilize before processing proper begins.
  • 5. Processing area II: Lots of surface space
    Ordering system
    Materials
    Supplies
  • 6. With us, processing, storage and preservation activities take place in the same location which was designed to for open stack browsing. Further more all the activities that are the equivalent to “technical services” take place in the same areas as all activities that are “public” and “reference services.”If one compares the layouts for these different services and their relation to each other in any academic library it is easy to see how distinct designs facilitate distinct functions.It is hard to work in an orderly way when one is fighting the space and when different functions are often colliding.
  • 7.
  • 8. Moravian Archive: Collection growth and large, odd-sized objects are accommodated by leaving 1-2 lower shelves empty.
  • 9. Moravian Archive: Economized by building up, with tall wide shelving
