Each summer Archives & Special Collections offers internships to graduate students from a broad spectrum of academic backgrounds. Interns work with collections preserved by the Dodd Research Center and learn the intricacies of preparing collections for future use by researchers. Archives & Special Collections benefits from the focused attention of these young scholars who work to enhance access to the collections we steward. This summer we are pleased to have five students working on a variety of projects. Pictured below are (seated) Arielle Rubins, (standing, l-r) Jorge Santos, Andrew Maloney and Jeffrey Egan. Not pictured is Jessica Strom.
Arielle (Psychology) is working on the development of a comprehensive finding aid for the University Photograph Collection.
Jorge (English) is extracting information from a database describing
materials in the Ed Young Papers in preparation for
the publication of the first finding aid available for the Young Papers.
Andrew (Library Science) is involved in the research and preparation of materials for a publication focused on the work of children’s author and illustrator, Tomie dePaola.
Jeff (History) is processing a portion of the papers of Congressman Bruce Morrison and updating the associated finding aid for the papers.
Jessica (History) has returned this summer to continue her work with a rare collection of broadsides from the period of the Italian Risorgimento. She is selecting broadsides from 1848 that will be digitized and made available online in September 2013.
