First off, I admit to being horrifically late with some of my internship documents. I will say, though, the reason most of this is late is because of the internship itself and where it got me – which was into a full-time position at IT Training, and into the role of Materials Coordinator (where I focus on digital publishing in the context of IT Training’s workshop materials, which is what my internship focused on!).
With my focus being in digital libraries, I feel that a lot of what I learned in my internship was relevant to my specialization. Digital publishing is a key part of digital libraries, as the information needs to be digitized in some way, and made accessible to interested parties. All of what I learned will be especially useful in constructing digital libraries and creating the digital documents people will use for research or personal enrichment and learning.
This blog, now that I’m finally wrapping up the last pieces of my internship, will go forth and be a record of my experiences in IT Training – not just in the Materials Coordinator world, but also as I research new technologies and modalities to help me deliver the best trainings I can to participants. It’ll also be a place for me to ramble about my love for digital librarianship, and hopefully encourage others to explore digital librarianship as well.
