I may be new at this whole blogging thing, but I am willing to give it a shot. My name is Ilana Mesnard and I am this semesters Fortenbaugh Intern in Music. When I applied, I knew I wanted to help out in the library and expand its music collection. Since I started my intern work in September, I've accomplished all that and more. In this time, I have learned many of the jobs of a music librarian. I've been asked to make programs for the Notes at Noon concerts, research obscure music, teach students library tools and more. I'll be sure to share all the cool things I've been doing this semester so keep reading! [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.
