My eighth week at Do It Best was the last week that I was able to be on campus. But, it was a great two days! I was able to work on two different projects over Thursday and Friday and worked out a regular schedule to work with specific parts of the analytic teams. On Thursdays I now work with the team’s data analysts and on Friday’s I work with the team’s data steward.
This was a joint decision between myself and my internship supervisor. We decided that at this point in the internship, my addition to the team should be more focused. I chose to work with the data analysts because it has been very relevant to the Sciences Library, where I work. Nearly all undergraduate students will encounter data in some for, but this is especially true for STEM disciplines. I also chose to work with the company’s only data steward because it directly relates to the duties of a librarian. The data steward analyzes the data that the company holds and organizes for usability.
