Former Archives & Special Collections Student Worker at University of Pittsburgh
almost 2 years ago
The Archives offer a great opportunity for both self-directed and collaborative work. Part of your day will be spent talking to archivists and other student workers about archival techniques and your plans for processing a collection (say the records of a University department or famous PA or national politician). At the same time, once you learn those techniques and set a plan for what you need to do, you'll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the collection you're working as you read and process it individually.
