Organizing the Polish Resource Center Collection

The coat closet downstairs is cleared of the stacks of boxes that came from the Polish Resource Center from Hilbert College that filled it from top to bottom, front to back.The boxes have been moved to the second floor.

We are in the process of organizing these books as well.


A Little Bit of Decorating

The back room has new curtains that were donated to the Library; they help to block harmful sunlight that could damage some of the older books.

The periodicals were reorganized. Duplicate copies of a few journal issues were deaccessed and will be donated to other libraries.

These are cataloged books that have been organized.

These letters help to visualize the new layout.

I have added an email where you can contact me with any questions about the Library. It is AMLDCLibrarian@gmail.com. I have also added an About page.

Clearing the Way

January 26, 2011

Good news! We have finally cleared the area around my desk. After many hours of work the front room is 90% cleared of boxes of books. The attached room is 70% clear. The process is underway for sorting and cataloging the 4000 volumes and the 400 hand-written plays.

Look at all the journals.

The front room is almost cleared of boxes.

Now here are some neat finds.

Found the AMLDC Constituton in one of the desk drawers.

And here is a recent donation to the collection.


A brief note: I have recently finished graduate school which I had been attending full time for the past year and a half. I now have a great deal more time to devote to the Library and learning more Polish.

Clearing Up

January 22, 2011

After a little break, we are back with some updates. This time we concentrated on moving a lot of boxes from the front near the door to the back room. We have designated the cleared table in the back room as a sorting table.

We cleared a mound of personal papers off of the front table and stored them in the back room to be further organized.

Stacks of boxes were moved from here; now there is a clear space.

Our newly designated sorting table!

In the back room, we found dozens of books that are not relevant to our collection. We will be selling these books on Ebay to raise money for the Library.  In the next post, which will be up shortly, I will post pictures of the books for sale and links to the Ebay listings.
