Week #1, 2012

Saskia and Vlad resumed work on Monday, June 4th. It was a busy but beautiful day – fair temperatures and clear skies to welcome new and returning interns, new and returning Fellows, and Byzantine Greek students.  Our team participated in various orientation activities during the morning and early afternoon, but, by mid-afternoon on day #1, Saskia and Vlad had already settled in and started work, each completing 1 microfilm and starting a 2nd by the time Deb made it to their office. By 4pm on Tuesday, the team was going full speed ahead and an impressive 20 microfilm had been processed.

By week’s end, total of 71 microfilm processed – wow!  Repositories represented this week:

  • Messina, Biblioteca Universitaria
  • Milan, Biblioteca Ambrosiana
  • Moscow, State Historical Museum of Moscow, and
  • Munich, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek.

We look forward to Roderick’s return next Monday!
