I worked as a library assistant in the university archives and special collections for two quarters in 2019. While there I worked on projects focusing on the digitization of photo collections, inventorying accessioned materials, processing collections, and digitizing documents of historic significance.  I also assisted researchers in acquiring materials, scanning research material, and finding other resources that may have been of use. Through these duties, I learned the basics of archival management and processing.

The most notable project I worked on was the processing of the Lloyd and Amy Bell Papers. In the process of sorting and filing the collection I created the inventory, rough draft finding aid, and biographical note.

The finding aid and biographical note can be found on archives west through the link here.

The other major project I worked on was the digitization of the Douglas Beck Photographs on Smokejumping Collection.
