My name is Melanie and I am a Fortenbaugh Intern in Special Collections. This is my third week in Special Collections, and I have to say I am loving the experience! I have been giving the task of cataloging the Potuchek Papers. I personally find college history to be very interesting, so I am having a great time going through these papers and examining how past courses were taught. There are also many materials having to do with college committees, and I am getting to see how these different organizations helped make Gettysburg College what it is today. [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.
