quick kills @ Bancroft blog

Lara Michels, an Archivist at the Bancroft Library, has a blog on tumblr that will update you on recent collections that have been processed.

Building on a recent survey of the institution’s manuscript holdings, archivists Lara Michels and Mario H. Ramirez are swiftly processing approximately 160 high priority collections, opening them up to a new generation of researchers.”

Recent collections featured include:
– Stud Cards from the Cooper-Molera Family Papers
– the Paul Seabury papers
– records of Mission Neighborhood Centers, Inc.
– records of the Indian Defense Association of Central and Northern California
