MOCA Exhibition Archive Finding Aids
The MOCA Exhibition Archive is a website that makes accessible institutional records generated by the curatorial department during the course of developing and producing exhibitions and performances. The website initiates a visual, rather than textual, navigation method by utilizing a unique combination of technologies to display EAD 2002-encoded XML files and their related digital assets. These files are uploaded using a specially-designed, web-based utility that also allows for the overlaying of revisions and the addition of future finding aids.

Maximizing Efficiency: The Use of Inkjet Copiers to Salvage Historical Inscriptions
Preserving historical inscriptions is a constant need in archival practice permeating the boundaries of academic, governmental, and scientific institutions. By implementing a 3-in-1 inkjet copier during a pilot project at Harvard University Library, historical inscriptions were efficiently copied from original negative enclosures onto archival storage envelopes. This poster will provide an introduction to the methodology and permanence of the pigment-based ink system while highlighting its promising uses in a variety of archival needs.
