Spring 2019 Internship – Week 4
Cataloging continues; it is slow work, and I am worried that I am moving too slowly already. It is challenging to work on this large of a project without a partner or consistent oversight. However, my supervisor is very busy attending to the collection’s needs due to our recent move, so I have truly been left to my own devices. One of my weaknesses as an employee is my tendency to overthink and get lost in the details of my work. It helps if I have someone to consult with on at least a weekly basis, but right now that just isn’t an option. The piles of books, published articles, and publications grows larger every day. I have done a basic catalog of over 400 new materials.
