End of my internship

Throughout my internship, I became familiar with applications and resources that promote and produce collections across IUPUI University Library’s Program of Digital Scholarship, including IUPUI ScholarWorks, Open Journal System, and the library’s Cultural Heritage digital collections. I worked on the Indiana Landmarks Wilbur D. Peat Collection adding and linking metadata to the item's record using CONTENTdm. I used resources like the Library of Congress' Historic Building Survey Collection, Indiana County Interim Reports (digitized and not digitized), and the Indiana Historic Slide Collection. During my time at Herron, I was able to interact with the Fine Press and Book Arts collection. I assisted Jake with photographing some of the artists' books. After Jake edited the photos, I cataloged them in CONTENTdm. As I sat at the front desk, I was able to answer several reference questions and taught a few patrons how to read call numbers. While interning at the Herron Art Library, I have gained experience in traditional library services and in-house digital production activities. Overall, I've had a wonderful experience working the library with DeeDee, Becki, and other library staff.
