|Julia Clark, Curator of Collections|
Meanwhile, Jane Clifton, who you may encounter in the Abbe Museum Shop when we are open, is tackling several projects in the Lab. She spent part of December sorting through exhibition records, copying the most important documents onto archival paper, and sorting into archival file folders and boxes- making the necessary transition from the museum's working files to the archives. During January, Jane is copying more than a decade of archaeological field school records onto archival paper and re-filing them in archival folder, important steps towards the long term preservation not only of collections, but of the very important records that go with them. Both archival projects are funded by grants from the Maine State Archives.

for an exhibit that will open at the Abbe next winter.
