My summer interlude in Avila Hall is almost over, as we plan to move the archival collections sometime this week. But before the chaos of moving begins, here are some photos of the Archives’ summer digs.

Entrance to the Archives

I had fantastic help with moving the Archives to Avila Hall in April. Mark, one of our contract employees and Anthony, one of our senior students who works for campus safety and our facilities office did the heavy lifting. They also disassembled and re-assembled shelving in both locations. Though, in order to use existing library shelving for the temporary  location I had to juggle collections so the guys could take apart my shelving units. To do this I moved the St. Paul School of Theology collections (being temporarily housed with us) to a locking study room elsewhere in the library. It was a tight fit, but doable since it was a very temporary fix. The whole move took about two weeks, with the guys occasionally being pulled away to work on other projects across campus.

As you can readily see, I had lots of materials to stabilize and prepare for moving day in April.
