The joys of archival work!

This past week I began, though only briefly, my practicum for my certificate in archives and special collections. I am working with the Charles W. Capps Jr. Archives at Delta State University in Cleveland, MS to digitize and create metadata for a collection of letters from one of the founding families of Clarksdale.

I'm looking forward to this work as it gives me hands-on experience under the watchful eye of a trained archivist (who is also a blast to work with). I'm looking forward to working on this project and will be posting progress and nifty facts that I learn here!
