Hi, I am a student at the University of Kentucky. This summer I worked a (paid!) internship at the Filson Historical Society in Louisville, KY, and have subsequently been hired as a part-time staff member. Upon graduating in May 2009, I my status will increase to full-time.
I applied for the internship to get a feel for whether or not I wanted to pursue archival work professionally, and it turns out I love it. I am looking forward to attending my first professional conference in my newly chosen field.
