Sounds like this should be a fun project! Have you decided on a system or methodology yet? My biggest suggestion would be to sketch out the information from a couple of different items and see how it looks and if it will meet the organization's needs before you get too far along in the project, especially since there are items in many different formats.

Good luck!

Hello!

I'm just starting a volunteer project to catalogue all the documents of a small organization. Partly this is just so they know what they have, but it's also to develop exhibits for future events. So it's arranging and describing, preservation and conservation, and display creation.

Do you have any suggestions for me to get started? I kinda know what to do but if anyone has experience I'd love to hear anything that could save me some time or make things extra-good!

They have:
- published books, some rare
- newletters
- pamphlets
- VHS tapes
- cassette tapes
- artifacts

If you don't like the road you're walking, start paving another one!
