Blog Prompt 5 (Due 2/28)

Blog Post: Based on your reading of the materials assigned for this week (including the optional readings if you’d like), what are your expectations of our trip to the Guthrie Museum’s archives? What questions do you have about how archives or archivists work?

In particular, I’d like you to formulate at least 2 questions for the archivist at the Guthrie about the Ochs collection. What do we want or need to know about the collection in order to judge its authenticity and reliability? What do we need to know more about in order to help the Museum make the artifacts it has acquired legible to the public? Are there any particular artifacts you’d like to see, and, if so, what are they? Do you have any questions about the preservation of the materials? Etc.

Posts will be due before class on 2/28 and should be as long as they need to be to show engagement with the issues.
