The more things change …. (classic advice from the Archives c.1979)

The more things change the more they stay the same! A couple of weeks ago I was given an old procedure manual for the Government Records Repository, State Records semi-active records repository, which dates from 1979.  It comes complete with some not so politically correct hand drawn illustrations. However, the real gem is to be found on page 13 (significant?) which shares that classic rite of passage for all trainee archivists and records professionals…..how to fold a Type 1 box.
