Wrapping up the paper

It’s getting toward the end of the semester, and I’m steadily working on wrapping up my papers. My records management paper is stalling out a bit, mostly due to how many interesting tangents I’m able to wander off in. Once or twice I’d realize that I’d spent an hour or two on a meandering Google path involving DoD 5015.3 discussions or similar.  The most useful reference that I’ve found, surprisingly, is my notes from the SAA conference over the summer.  I attended a seminar that addressed electronic records, specifically born-digital records, which has been a huge help.

At the museum, I’m still pulling staples. I’ve heard jokes that this is what Purgatory is like, but I really do find it relaxing, if sort of boring to tell you every week that I’m still pulling staples and re-housing.

How’s the end of the semester going for everyone? What’s the plan for next semester?



  1. Right now I’m about to start my final – two questions, five pages each. I just accepted a student loan so I’ll finally be able to take more than one class a semester. I finally stand a chance of actually graduating sometime before my children do! Next semester, I’m taking Historical Research and Collection Management.

    • Historical Research and Collection Management sounds pretty awesome. I have a Historical Writing class that I’m already mildly afraid of.
