This month I completed a 3-month internship as an archives assistant at the Visual Collections of the Dallas Historical Society which is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Dallas and Texas history. Offering education programming, lectures, historic city tours, museum exhibitions, and other special events, this organization strives to be the preeminent resource for exploring, and instilling appreciation for the diverse history of Dallas and Texas.
I organized and rehoused archival materials such as photographs, negatives, slides, tintypes, glass plates and postcards.
Described materials, created finding aids and shared collections with the public using PastPerfect Online.
Digitized materials of various formats using a flatbed scanner.
Assisted with overall collections management, preservation and care.
