Wrapping up the Blueprint Project, Summer 2015

We're winding down our work on the Blueprint Project for the summer.  Chris Libby has cataloged and scanned approximately 700 blueprints and engineering sketches.  Now we're busy housing them all in archival storage.

Here is our workroom, filled to the brim.  A bit chaotic!

Smaller blueprints go in flat boxes.

Larger blueprints are rolled in tissue paper.

Rolled on 8" archival tubes.

And neatly tied with cotton tape.  Very tidy.

The next phase of the project will take a bit longer.  Editing the images for optimum viewing and then a final upload into Digital Maine.  Hoping to finish that work by the end of September.
