In September, our library and other CCS member libraries are moving to a new online catalog called Enterprise. The online catalog we currently use is provided by a third-party called BiblioCommons. The new catalog will function a lot like this catalog.  As part of the migration, on August 15, 2014, your existing BiblioCommons shelves and lists will be copied over to Enterprise as private lists.  After August 15, any new BiblioCommons lists or shelves (or modifications to existing ones) will not be transferred to Enterprise.  In addition, tagging, reviews, and other user-generated information will not migrate to Enterprise.

The Unofficial Family Archivist

A Guide to Creating and Maintaining Family Papers, Photographs, and Memorabilia
Mannon, Melissa (Book - 2011 )
The Unofficial Family Archivist

Item Details

"Within every home is a treasure trove of information. Unfortunately, many irreplaceable documents that help tell individual stories, and the stories of our communities, are deteriorating among our personal belongings." With that warning in mind, this book focuses on the care of personal papers, photographs, and memorabilia found in the typical home. Written for individuals who hope to protect family history, this book provides everything an unofficial archivist needs to ensure materials that connect us with our past are available for future generations. Its goal is to help you create and maintain a valuable family and community resource of recorded information about your world from the unique point of view of you and your loved ones. The Unofficial Family Archivist is organized into eight sections that discuss preservation; creating and identifying materials that represent you; how to properly organize, preserve, and describe these items; how to prepare them to pass on to future generations. This book provides information to guide you so you may enjoy your materials, easily access them, feel comfortable that they will last for a long time and be treasured by your descendants.
