Week 8-10 | October 31- November 14 2018

Hello its Gaten again, back again with another intern blog. These past 3 weeks have had me work on Finding Aids for the numerous collections that are public. I followed a similar procedure fpr each one. First I created a Finding Aid Template. For each of the collections I filled in the information the best I could based off the existing finding aid. If no finding aid existed, I had to use information from the master collection spreadsheet. For some of the collections, I imported the collection list from the museum’s website. To wrap up each finding aid, I created a pdf of the finding aid in Microsoft word. Omeka needs pdf files for uploads so I had to do that.
