Oh dear, I afraid I'm already falling behind in blogging. I knew there was I reason I quit the last one...
But in other news, I interviewed for and got an internship today! Where at, you ask? I will be interning at The Watson Research Library at the Metropolitan Museum of Art! God, I love NY.
I did not realize that the Met has 20 libraries within its walls. Most of them are small collections within a curatorial department, but some of them are bigger like the Nolan Library which has educational materials for the public, particularly teachers. The libraries recently went under a "realignment" project which now puts the Watson at the hub of all 20 libraries. My internship will allow me to work with many of these libraries doing a variety of tasks including: paging materials, working on a mass inventory project (which details working with over 70,000 materials, just a mere 10% of the Watson's collection), doing some reference work in the Nolan and Watson, along with some other tasks. I will be interning there 10 hours a week, probably the mornings of the days I have classes.
I am super stoked!
