Discovering What is Hidden in the WCVB Collection

Submitted by karin

Outside the lupin was blooming, and inside NHF the inventory for the WCVB Collection, the subject of our new CLIR (Council on Library and Information Resources) grant, grew to more than 4,700 items, up from early estimations of about 2,400 when the grant was written.
During the inventory each item of this new acquisition was visually inspected and initial notes were made, after reading the can notes or box labels, about the content of each program, and fragility of the program’s tape or film.

Here is what we found among the reels and boxes.
