Backstage debuts archival processing services in pilot project with Lock Haven University


BETHLEHEM, Pa., August 6, 2013 — In a groundbreaking pilot project with Lock Haven University, Backstage Library Works has provided the university’s archives with archival processing services, allowing researchers access to the Mary Ward Collection which spans six decades from the 1930s through the 1980s.

The Mary Ward collection was processed on-site at the folder level, labeled to describe contents and dates, and rehoused in new boxes. Final processing produced three linear feet, plus an eight-page finding aid that was converted to EAD format.
