Blogging the Library has been capturing the internship experience at Musselman library since the spring of 2011. Over time the blog has featured Fortenbaugh, Smith, and Holley interns. They share updates on semester long projects, respond to blogging prompts, and document their individual intern experience. Early posts up through 2013 are available on Blogger, and more recent posts can be seen on WordPress.
