Still cleaning up....
We are still cleaning up, and sorting out things after the move. Today it was mainly the works on paper section of the collection: prints, maps, postcards, original photographs, posters, greeting cards. Lots of beautiful items. It's good to know ephemeral material like this, which reveals so much of Palestinian culture, has survived.
We lost over a month of emails. Very frustrating. Next Monday we will begin sorting through all the emails we've just been given and respond to as many reference enquiries as fast as we can. Quite often the reference enquiries are by Palestinians in the diaspora wanting to know where to purchase a traditional wedding dress, so a delay in getting back to them can be dreadful - we'd hate them not to have the right dress!
