We have a list of many projects that do not require any computer skills at all. For example:
1. The microfilm has become a bit of a mess over the years - where researchers haven't put the film back in its original location. We could use a helping hand in going through each drawer and double checking each film is in the correct place.
2. As part of our effort to get all of our publications, newsletters and Journals digitized, we could use a helping hand with the labor intensive portion of pulling these things out of the page protectors. If you would like to learn to scan them with the copy machine, we'll be glad to teach you, but it's not necessary. Once the items are scanned they all need to go back into the books. This is not a hard job, but it time intensive.
3. We have almost 30 years worth of membership information that needs to be compiled into one place. Taking all of the information from different sources and alphabetizing it is the first step to organizing it.
None of these require any special time commitment - if you can come in one hour this week, and then in a few more weeks you have a few more hours, that is great. There is no deadline to meet. You do not need to have a set schedule, just let us know you would like to help!
