Hi! My name is Rohan Cherivirala. I am currently a freshman at Stanford University. As of now, I plan on double majoring in math and computer science. Since my second quarter at Stanford, I have been working in the Stanford University Archives and have enjoyed every single minute of it.
It is with mixed emotions that we will bid farewell to Presley Hubschmitt, who is leaving Stanford Libraries in mid-March to begin a position as Processing Archivist at the Bancroft Library at UC Berkeley, her alma mater. She will be splitting her time between the Regatta facility in Richmond and the Berkeley campus. Her passion for her work and her fabulous sense of humor will be greatly missed. We are sad to lose our dear colleague, but happy that she will be working so close to her home.
Please pardon our radio (blog?) silence for the past several months--it’s been a whirlwind of boxes, folders, files, and finding aid updates here in University Archives!
The Stanford Archives has been furiously processing our backlogged collection materials with the help of our new student workers for the fall quarter. Since the late summer, we have processed approximately 154.25 linear feet of archival materials. (For scale, 1 record storage carton measures 1.5 linear feet, while 1 manuscript box equals 0.5 linear feet.)
