An Update on Work in the William Stafford Archives

The staff at the William Stafford Archives at Lewis & Clark College have neglected this blog for the past year while we have been working hard to finish a number of massive cataloging projects. While we apologize for our absence, we are happy to announce that most of our major projects are complete and all of our new Stafford research tools are accessible to the public.

Key among these new tools is the soon-to-be-released Stafford bibliography (see this posting about the book). Additionally, the entire 130 linear foot research collection is now searchable and browsable through online finding aids at the Stafford Archives website. The organizational chart for the entire collection can be seen below. 

We look forward to seeing you in the archives.
