Harry S. Truman Library & Museum

Archives Intern

June - July 2018 • Kansas City, MO

What I liked

I really liked the hands-on-experience working in the archives of a prestigious museum and library. I had a good degree of autonomy and responsibility that helped me feel my job was important and learn more about working in archives.

What I wish was different

I wish the job itself had been less solitary but that is the nature of archives work.
