The Day of Service is a New England Archivists community volunteer project
that is part of the annual Spring Meeting program. This year's event on
Thursday, March 23rd, will offer volunteers a variety of experiences at two
possible sites. Participating in NEA's Day of Service is a great way to
enhance your skills, or learn new ones, and join with colleagues and new
friends to serve the profession.

Sign up to volunteer at either the Sturgis Library or at the Bourne
Historical Society using the *2017 Day of Service Volunteer Form
<https://goo.gl/forms/mzlvEaCTIAbbOfjk2>*. Shifts are first come, first
serve, and space is limited so sign up early to guarantee a spot*. Sign ups
will close Wednesday, March 22nd, OR as soon as all spots are filled. Once
someone signs-up for a shift, the project organizers will email potential
volunteers to confirm participation and share further logistical details.
*You do not have to attend the Spring 2016 Meeting in order to participate
in the NEA Day of Service event.

ABOUT THE PROJECTS

Sturgis Library <http://www.sturgislibrary.org/>:
*Project #1: Gravestones preservation work*
Volunteers will encapsulate gravestone rubbings, a project for which prior
experience is strongly requested. Mylar and double stick tape are provided;
these supplies are partially funded by the Cape Cod Antique Dealers’
Association.

*Project #2: Stanley Smith Deed Collection online database*
Volunteers will contribute to the Stanley Smith Deed Collection online
database, a work-in-progress in collaboration with the Boston Public
Library. Amassed by local historian Stanley Webster Smith (1869-1941), this
extensive collection includes deeds for land, property, wharfs, salt works,
and church pews. Volunteers will work from digital images and fill out
forms with keywords and other information (to be entered into the database
by a staff member). Volunteers are encouraged to bring their own laptops if
they have them.

Bourne Historical Society <http://www.bournehistoricalsociety.org/>:
*Project: Town Undertaker Edward D. Nickerson diary transcription *
The Bourne Historical Society recently received three diaries, dating from
1898-1930, with photographs and handwritten descriptions of Bourne from the
town undertaker Edward D. Nickerson (at that time the only undertaker on
Cape Cod). Volunteers will transcribe one volume (111 pages, covering
1902-1921) from photocopies and are encouraged to bring their own laptops,
as computers at the historical society are limited (transcriptions may also
be handwritten initially). Volunteers’ ideas or suggestions for an upcoming
exhibit, tentatively titled “Edward D. Nickerson, A Bourne Original:
Undertaker, Environmentalist, Storyteller,” will also be welcome.

Bring your expertise and enthusiasm and help make a difference at one of
these cultural heritage institutions on the Cape!
