Hey there! This week has been a transition period for me with this internship! I have finished the Ostrom collection’s Archive Space finding aid so what am I up to now?
Well, this week I have started work on the Romanian Americans of Lake County Collection. This collection is from the 1970s but its metadata is a mess! So I have been instructed to start to audit the data that we have and make corrections/additions to our records. Mainly this is centered around the number of tapes that are included in the collection.
Another fun thing that I have done this week is I got to work on a patron request! We had gotten a request from a researcher that was looking for a transcript from a specific 1970s interview for their work! It was really cool to be able to find and send off something!
This request was very straight forward but I ended up having to create a new scan of the written transcript because the previous file that we had was not 100% usable!
That is all for now!
