Position title: New archives grad currently working tech support to pay the bills.
Type of repository: I’ve had a bit of experience interning at academic archives and special collections, a bit of experience on research projects. Ideally I’d like to work in archives and special collections, but I’m also interested in science/medical librarianship (and just about everything else).
Location: Boston, MA
This was my undergraduate graduation present to myself. The blue lotus on my back represents the ephemeral and illusive nature of existence. Yes, this was during my pretentious writer hipster phase. Photo courtesy of my good friend AJ Kane. Additional context here.
I got this before I went to library school to remind me that no matter how dark and how lost I get, I can always find my way back home. These little symbols are on white paint on the roads in Portland to show bicycle routes. No matter how dark it was outside or no matter how turned around I got, if I saw them on the road, I would eventually find my way home.
