PACSCL Hidden Collections Processing Project » Independence Seaport Museum

The archivist there, Matt Herbison (now at Drexel University College of Medicine Legacy Center) had a few spreadsheets detailing information on ships' plans-information that made the collections truly useful to researchers. Problem was, there were thousands of entries in the spreadsheets and we knew that our processors could never re-key or copy/paste that information into the Archivists' Toolkit in the time allotted for the processing.
Because we knew that this information would really make a difference for users, we thought and thought of ways to make this work, but our best solution involved saving the spreadsheet as a pdf and linking to it from the finding aid-not very elegant. And then Matt, who really is extraordinarily techie, created this amazing spreadsheet that solved the problem.
...
Matt has offered to share this spreadsheet with everyone.
