You seek primary sources for historical research
But the library catalog has left you in the lurch
The archives contains all the information that you need
So come on down and we’ll give you a document to read
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
An archivist is hard to resist!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
An archivist is hard to resist!
Can use my
Can use my
Yeah, you can use my finding aids
They’re EAD-encoded
Can use my
Can use my
Yeah, you can use my finding aids
They’re EAD-encoded
F-f-f-finding aids, f-f-finding aids
F-f-f-finding aids, f-f-finding aids
When we get new collections, we try to make some sense
Of who created them, and all of their contents
Arrangement and description make them usable for you
And help you find the sources for the research that you do
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
An archivist is hard to resist!
Oh, oh, oh, oh, ohhhh, ohh-oh-e-ohh-oh-oh
An archivist is hard to resist!
Can use my

Yeah, you can use my finding aids
They’re EAD-encoded

Yeah, you can use my finding aids
They’re EAD-encoded
F-f-f-finding aids, f-f-finding aids
F-f-f-finding aids, f-f-finding aids
Welcome to the reading room
No pens in here please, pencils
are the sole writing utensils
Staff will retrieve your selections
Then you can use our collections
Just respect original order
I promise this, I promise this
You’ll find history marvelous
Can use my
Can use my
Yeah, you can use my finding aids
They’re EAD-encoded…“

In Deutschland undenkbar, oder?
