High School Interns 2019: DAY 3

What is the most interesting job you have undertaken and/or skill you have gained while interning at the library so far? Why is it the most interesting?

A skill I have gained was to think outside of the box and not to give up easily. I learned this from being in the Scholar’s Lab and working with the 3D printers. I had to learn how to work the printing program and be creative with the tools I have. We also faced issues with the plastic not being sufficient and making a mess. We did not give up and we kept working to solve the problem. — Seychelle

The most useful skill I have learned is how to navigate the LOC classification system. This will be incredibly useful for me when I go to college next year, and could even help me get a job in the library there. I also learned that as a member of the Charlottesville community I can go to the special collections library at any time (that it is open) and look at anything from the special collections. I have also found it interesting to learn about how books get put back on the shelves. I am excited to learn more! — Talia

The most interesting skill that I learned today was sewing music sheet in to the folder. It was interesting to me because I have never sew music sheet before and honestly my hands hurt pulling the strings but I love doing it. — Bawk

The most interesting job I had during the internship was creating the book marks for all of the other interns with Seychelle!  I learned how to create my own 3D Printing designs. This was the most interesting skill I learned because it was really fun, challenging, new, and I got to be creative with it! — Theo

The most interesting skill I have gained was to be able to help Amber make spreadsheets to determine what forms on the Library website would they need to take down , if it’s not being used. I made columns for name, entries, views, and date of the last entry, and that helped us determine which forms should be removed, or maybe revised. I also got to learn about what steps, and the process Amber undergoes to create headlines for web page for different department advertisements. It was really interesting because, I got to see what goes on behind the scenes and the different aspects of the library page. — Tianna
