The James O. Rigney papers (Special Collections Department of the College of Charleston)

Rigney’s Apple /// computer

Posted on 27 March 2013 | 10:33 am — 

While consisting primarily of typescripts the collection also includes Rigney’s 1980s Apple /// computer. As you can see from the images below it does work. What you can’t see is that some of the keyboard keys don’t function as they should, in particular the number 8 key which lists what files are on the hard drive. Luckily for us there is a local Mac repair shop nearby and I’m hoping when I speak to him he’ll have some advice on how to repair it. If that’s not possible maybe he’ll at least have some advice on how to get the data off the hard drive and onto something more stable and accessible for our archive patrons.

Processing update

Posted on 30 January 2013 | 3:38 pm — 

Just a quick update on the physical processing of the collection. Everything is going well and I have removed all the typescripts, galley proofs including notes and outlines from their old boxes into new brand new Hollinger boxes. When the collection arrived a majority of the older typescripts arrived in old Globe-Weis storage cases which were in pretty bad shape.

Case in point:

oldbox

As you can see the right side of the box was detached from the front panel.

Now all the typescripts and galley proofs sit secure in their new Hollinger boxes awaiting box labels.
