Trove Tuesday - Filing

I'm feeling rather virtuous as I spent the best part of yesterday filing - a task that I usually avoid like the plague.

Trove offers some filing related advice..

Interesting that they printed the newspapers on better quality paper for the library to preserve :)

Who would have thought Trove would have so much on filing?! Love the cartoon though. Good work, doing the filing...imminent holidays can have that effect :)
