Special Collections Welcomes Three Interns

Special Collections is pleased to host three interns during the fall 2013 semester!

Beth McDonald is a graduate student in the Library and Information Science program at UCLA. During the internship, she will process two of our newest acquisitions the Alan Reed Papers and the Michael D. “Micky” Moore Papers. Reed and Moore were both active in the film and television industry. Reed is best known as the original voice of Fred Flintstone on the show The Flintstones while Moore is probably best known for his work as a second unit director on such projects as the Indiana Jones trilogy, Patton, and The Ten Commandments. The project includes arranging and describing materials, writing a finding aid, adding descriptive information to Archivists’ Toolkit, uploading the finding aids to the Online Archive of California, creating MARC records to add to the library catalog, and assisting the archivist with selecting items for digitization or an upcoming exhibit.

Kendal Copeland is a junior at Pepperdine University majoring in Sports Broadcasting and minoring in History. Kendal will enhance the finding aid of the Pepperdine University Athletics Records. Kendal will describe the collection in greater detail, adding folder level description to Archivists’ Toolkit and updating the finding aid. She will also assist the archivist with selecting items for digitization or an exhibit.

Victoria Collie is a graduate student in the School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University. She is currently working on the Edwards Metcalf Collection of Books on T.E. Lawrence. Victoria is creating a research guide to the collection, including a biography of Lawrence, an annotated bibliography of selected materials in the collection, and curated lists of research resources on Lawrence. In addition, Victoria will also be doing detailed processing of the related Metcalf Papers and creating an exhibit of materials from the collection.

If you see Beth, Kendal, or Victoria around this fall make sure you say hi!
