Hope for Microfilm

Okay so work is a little stressful right now. Everyone has stress at work... I know. Right now it's very stressful for me. I cannot tell you that and just leave it there.... I feel the need to explain why... a little.

So, back in June we lost a staff member because she had a baby and wanted to be a stay at home mom. Great for her. Can't blame her. But due to the economy, she was not replaced. Last year the work we have been doing for the Baptists increased by like 200% and the year before that like %164 percent. That's a lot of work and basically we all fell apart a couple of weeks ago.

Yesterday, the Microfilm Lab Technician and I were laughing hysterically as we looked over some reports and we came up with the need to create ourselves a ribbon. You know, like the Aids Ribbon... or the Hope for Haiti Ribbon. Clearly, no one at SU is dying so it might be in bad taste but we had some film that wasn't being used and made this.

If you look closely... very, very closely you will see that is the St. Clair News Aegis from 2008. And you know... as an additional FYI, I made that strip yesterday and I burnt my finger doing it. So, that ribbon does, in fact, represent pain in my life... just not death.

If you would like to have a Ribbon in Support of the Special Collection and Microfilm Dept. one can be made available for you for just the price of shipping and handling.

Hope everyone else is doing well.

Love ya


Sweetie!!! Hook me up!!! I totally want to support the Special Collection and my favorite Archivist!

Can't wait to wear it.
