PT Archival Processing @ Seattle Public Schools

From Aaren Purcell, Records Manager, Seattle Public Schools:

Come spend 20 hours a week in the public school archives wrestling with electronic and paper school board records and bringing order and light to our building-property-construction files.  We are currently using archivespace to manage the process and public access to the collection, but the position would also help out two days a week with public access – interesting genealogy question to construction blue prints on Wednesday and Friday.  The rest of the hours/days are flexible.
