My name is Avery Fox and I am the Diane Werley Smith ’73 intern for the summer of 2015. My opportunities in the Musselman Library Special Collections include a spattering of conservation, archival, and cataloguing projects and getting an introduction to all of the activities that take place in Special Collections. I will be working closely with the staff experiencing first hand all of the work that goes into the organized and preserved collections. So far I have begun work on a collection of letters from Lillian Quinn, a woman who lived in the World War II era, as well as a project with the pamphlet collection. In addition, I and the other interns have been working with Mary, the Special Collection’s conservator, on a variety of conservation projects. There is more to come on these projects as the summer progresses, and I’ll be sure to post pictures! [excerpt]
