We have an intern at the Wyoming State Library! Kate Dennis has joined us for the summer to work on digitization and metadata projects.
Kate is from Laramie, and is currently attending the University of Iowa. She’s majoring in history and minoring in Russian and Eastern European studies, with future career ambitions to earn an MLS and work in libraries.
Kate came to the WSL wanting to learn the ins and outs of special libraries and the different departments within them. “I think it’d be cool to work in a state library or a presidential library,” she said. Kate wanted to know more about digitization, metadata, the WYLD Network, and the State Library’s digital collections. All of this ties into a way to build on both her undergraduate work and the graduate education she hopes to pursue.
“I’d like to tie history to my job,” Kate said. “I always feel like I’m finding buried treasure in all the historical resources when I’m digitizing and exploring the collections.”
