"KevinS
Ooops! I forgot mhhbook is the DPL for this collection! Sorry!"


Oops! I keep forgetting that I usually use my catalog name, which is Mary in Arkansas.

If it can be changed on this collection without any trouble, that's good. If not, mhhbook is OK.
When I catalog it, I can update the archive page to say the DPL is Mary in Arkansas.
I will be "Out of the Office" until Monday and will catch up with everything then. Peace be with you all.

Hello,
Is it too late for me to submit a new recording for this collection?
I would like to record and upload my rendering of Holy Sonnet 14 by John Donne. I plan to use this PG etext:
https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/48688
May I submit this poem? And what is the deadline for submissions for this collection?
Thanks in advance.

Yes, the time for submissions closes tomorrow. Donne's sonnet would be a great addition!

Finally finished! It took me three sessions to get it all recorded. Looks like I'm a good contender for longest section in this year's collection. :wink:

I have an admin question: How particular are we about the end of the recordings covering just 5 seconds? Is there any leeway for a longer silence? Many thanks!

Section 13, "Survey of Occupations Open to the Girl of Fourteen to Sixteen Years" is PL OK. :)

Maria, while I was proof listening to this very interesting item, I thought about factory working conditions during that time...especially the infamous Triangle Factory Fire. I noticed that the copyright date on this publication is 1912. That's after the fire, which happened in 1911. I suppose this report was being written and/or published at the time of the fire. And, of course, this was written long before the infamous radium girl incidents. People went through some rough things to earn a living back then. Anyway, thanks for finding this and reading it!
Mary, thanks for your comments on this selection. I worried that it might seem dry or boring as a topic, though I personally found it a fascinating window into another era. While I had known that girls as young as 14 worked in the garment business, I was enlightened by this pamphlet as to exactly what sort of work they might be doing. While older girls who had received training in the trade schools were able to make a fair living as sewing-machine operators, these young untrained girls were only able to earn a pittance doing unskilled work such as sewing on buttons and labels, or snipping threads off finished clothes. And the independent dressmakers and milliners, who used to train young girls through apprenticeships, were rarely doing that anymore by 1912, expecting employees to come to them already trained from a trade school, using the young untrained girl only as an errand girl at low pay. While we think of how the job outlook for folks without the right "skill set" is changing nowadays, works like this pamphlet show us the same kind of issue was also a concern in 1912.

Thanks for the PL! I'm looking forward to listening to all the other selections in this collection when it's cataloged!

I'm not an admin, of course, but I've had silences of say 8 seconds approved. (I was DPL in those cases. Twice perhaps.) I wouldn't think it would be a problem to ask that a section of silence be trimmed. (I imagine the BC could do it him or herself, too, if need be.)
E agora, José?
