However, if there are only a few pages of notes, it might be easier to group them together and indicate their subject matter on the folder in which they are placed. [excerpt]


The Interns at Gettysburg College’s Musselman Library captured their internship experiences since the spring of 2011. Over time the blog has featured Fortenbaugh, Smith, and Holley interns. They shared updates on semester long projects, responded to blogging prompts, and documented their individual intern experience.
