How about soliciting volunteers

by Alberta

to defray part of the cost? If you hire an archivist, full or part-time, can't part of their duties be to supervise volunteers? Though I won't be available for a few years, I'd love to spend 2 weeks in Davenport some day typing in entries, tagging items, whatever is involved in that kind of work. It's a chance to actually make a contribution that gives the contributor a sense of accomplishment.
