In honor of American Archives Month, here's a sweet little parody of the folk song "Little Boxes" that transforms a critique of suburbia into a tongue-in-cheek portrayal of the work that archivists do and the little boxes ("there's a gray one and a gray one and a gray one and a gray one") into which they place paper records. I don't know who LettersFromTheAbyss is, but it's quite evident that he's either an archivist or someone who spends a lot of time around archivists.
Thanks to Nathan Tallman for drawing my attention to this charming little video.
. . . is Bonnie Weddle, a mildly workaholic electronic records archivist. This blog is a (partial) record of the life of a working archivist, and in it you'll find information about electronic records issues, government transparency, open records laws, archival security, New York State history, and other abiding concerns. And because even a workaholic archivist needs to get out of the processing room every now and then, you'll find the occasional travelogue and off-topic post.
