In honor of National Archives Month, here’s an exclusive sneak peek at how stacks and stacks of scripts, papers, photographs, disks and more are processed in the WGF Archive.
The truth is it takes many hours to assess, process, house and catalog a collection. We wish it were as easy as simply placing a book on a shelf, but it requires time, expertise, creativity, research, supplies and special programs and software to organize the archival materials.
Thanks to donations and grants, such as the generous support of the Writers Guild of America, West, the WGF Archive is slowly but surely providing brief catalog records and increasing access to more collections. And now we’re even featured at the Online Archive of California. Look for more collections to appear in the future!
