There are many opportunities to engage with the ICA Global Archives in the upcoming year. Starting in January 2015, a team will be EXTRACTING files from basement storage. These BASEMENT MINERS have selected one category to focus on; 'Global Research Assembly' documents will be selected by year and placed in bankers boxes, loaded onto the freight elevator and brought to the 6th floor.

There will be ORGANIZING by 
CHICAGO TEAMSTERS who will pile the files on tables, organize them into broad categories, and prepare documents for foldering with two copies per folder. These folders will then be entered in the FileMaker Pro list and assigned serial numbers. 'Tip of the Iceberg' documents will be selected for scanning.

There will also be DIGITIZING by
VIRTUAL TECHIES to make these files available for access by interested persons around the globe.

The Archives Project is encouraging OFF-SITE COLLEAGUE ENGAGEMENT: You can scan documents from your files and send to the Archives Project to add to the GRA year collection.
