30 Jun Continuing Community Partnerships and beginning the inventory for my summer project at CHAM.
This second week of my L.H.I.P. internship at CHAM was really fun, we continued our oral history project at a community partner institution. In addition we started discussing and implementing the direction of my project for the summer which would consist of finishing the inventory of non-accessioned items at CHAM in order to update the Scope of Collections Statement. I made some interesting discoveries while conducting the inventory, among some random items I found the central files and personal papers of the first Superintendent at CHAM. This summer will be full of discoveries, and I look forward to further developing my skills as a cultural resource specialist while learning from my mentor here at CHAM, Mark Calamia, Cultural Resource Manager for the NPS. I will keep this post short and sweet, while I continue my work and look forward to hearing from my colleagues and their adventures with L.H.I.P. this summer. Like always, ¡¡¡Pa’lante mi gente!!!
