    Dear Colleagues,

    Descriptive Notes is pleased to share the latest post in its Archival Labor series: "Emotional Labor and Descriptive Practices in the Archives," by Taylor Wolford. The author discusses how processing an animal rights and welfare collection at the NC State University Libraries led to a graduate research project investigating emotional labor, trauma, and the use of content warnings in archives.
