It's been a very busy month! Most of the work is complete inside the new facility. Spacesaver is putting the final touches on the mobile shelving install, the floor is (mostly) down, the walls painted, the wood ceiling in the Visual Imaging lab is going up, the millwork is complete, the network/ethernet wiring has been installed. In other words - it's time to start shopping for furniture!
Earlier this month, Sustainable Archaeology hosted a workshop for end users and regulators in the Cultural Resource Management industry. The purpose of the workshop was to introduce the industry formally to the facility, and to generate discussion and feedback on collections management practices that would guide the facility in generating Best Practice policies for Ontario archaeological collections. Watch this space, our web page and ArchNotes for a summary of the day's discussions. We are interested in generating feedback - which we'll welcome on this Blog as well as over email or standard mail.
