Our first day of the HHS service project exposed us to the less glamorous but essential side of archival work - stack cleaning. Masked with wet towels in hand, we wiped away years of dust and mold ensuring the sound preservation of the records. We also replaced lights and enveloped the florescent tubes in UV filters to prevent damage from the harmful rays.
Despite it being our first time at HHS, it felt like home. We were graciously welcomed by Nicki Garces and Jennifer Higa, who patiently explained archival procedures to us and provided us with a delicious spread from Chun Wah Kam.
