California, Georgia, St. Louis: a Bleg

Looking for some research help: I am writing a book and am looking for some help copying archival records. I know exactly what I want I just don’t have the time to travel. The records are located at Mills College, Oakland, CA; the University of Georgia in Athens; and the Missouri Historical Society in St. Louis. This would only be a few hours work in each location. I am looking in particular for students in those areas who might want to earn some extra money. In addition to the meager remuneration, I will also put your name in the acknowledgements. Diplomatic skills in dealing with archivists a plus, since these are old documents. The Mills assignment requires a digital camera since the document in question cannot be photocopied.
