As to duties generally anything involving inquiries about past records
and making them more available. Asterisk and the other officers have
their hands full already and like don't exactly have time to do this
type of thing.
Currently November 1996 and later commentary and LoIs are in the web
library. An archivist could scan and place the rest of these records
on the web as far back as they go for our kingdom.
Indexing all submissions that have been accepted and returned by
kingdom for the past 20 years. This would be an immense help to
local heralds who have had to clean up a heralds office neglected
for a few years (been there, done that one). It would also help
Arbalest to track down returned devices. Such a index could be
placed in the web library with the other back issues.
A list of names passed by kingdom over the years and the references
used to document the name. (If we had this at SCA wide level we
wouldn't spend time documenting some of these names over and over
again.) This would help when used with such resources as the St.
Gabriel's Academy library for local heralds without a large book
I guess the job would be to free Asterisk, Bordure, and Obelisk
from the task of dealing with past records and let them concentrate
on processing the submissions for the current month. More submissions
tables like 20th year are going to increase the number of submissions.
I get an average of a dozen questions from our members on items they
would like to submit at every event and week at RenFair. There is a
huge amount of heraldry to be done in our kingdom and an Archivist
could help keep the workload from breaking one of our current heralds.
something to give some thought
