My Life as an Intern: Farewell and Thank You

Hi, it’s Candace Pine here again – and for the final time. Today marks the last day of my internship at the Miami University Special Collections and Archives. I have finished up my required internship hours, and I will be graduating from Kent State University with my MLIS degree in just a couple of weeks. I have to admit, though, that I am quite sad to see this internship end. I’ve had the opportunity to learn a lot, meet wonderful people, and to work with all kinds of different and interesting materials. And I certainly feel like I am much more prepared to start my career in this field now that I have had this experience. So I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped me and supported me during this internship – to Bill Modrow and Justin Bridges for teaching me and guiding me through this process, to all of the staff and student workers here at the Special Collections and Archives for helping me whenever I needed it and for making this a great environment to work in, and to the librarians in the Art & Architecture Library, B.E.S.T. Library, and Amos Music Library for giving me a tour of their libraries, talking to me about their careers, and giving me advice. I appreciate it all very much.

As for you, readers, I hope you have enjoyed following my journey through this internship. Hopefully you found my blog posts to be interesting, informative, and perhaps a bit entertaining. And please continue to keep up with what is going on here in Special Collections and Archives. There are always interesting things going on and exciting materials to discover!  

If you want to keep up with me, one of the last things I learned during my internship was how to set up my own website using Omeka, and I have already created a few small digital exhibits there. I hope to be able to continue to add new content in the future, as well, so if you’d like to check the site out it can be found here:  

Thanks again!
