In the interim, we’ve learned how to use the “Boxbot” and loaded over 12,000 boxes into it. We’ve shifted over 5000 feet of materials into the Library Depository. And we’re hoping to start moving the final 7000 feet of materials, including the contents of the rare book vault, into basement storage in Charles in early August.
We’ve been answering your questions as best we can, given the periodic inaccessibility of parts of the collection. Thanks to so many of you who are waiting patiently for us to reopen and answer your questions or who have changed your research schedule to allow for our closure. Thanks, too, to our patient donors who have held collections until we are ready to receive them this fall.
Now is the time for faculty members who want to schedule instruction sessions with us to start sending us those requests. We very much look forward to hosting you in our new instruction room and working with you and your students.
Please don’t hesitate to be in touch with questions: 215-204-8257 or firstname.lastname@example.org . We look forward to serving you in our new space in late August/early September.
