Archiving Materials Takes Preparation

Archiving donated materials can require significant preparation time before they can be displayed for public viewing. A recent donation of photographic slides created by the late Lloyd Syer (1928-2022), former Director of the Belleville Parks and Recreation Department, presents [such a challenge]. The slides arrived in September. Some were in carousels, others in plastic sleeves, but the majority were loose in a large plastic bag. The slides had been taken over the course of Lloyd Syer’s long career with the City of Belleville, from 1964 to 1990, with a few earlier slides extending back to 1959.
