Final Project Topic

March 9, 2011

I am planning to focus my final project on Archivists. Maybe you have visited an archive and wondered what goes on behind the scenes or did you picture people working in dusty little rooms, shuffling old papers all day? Those people, called archivists, do organize a lot of paper and other materials. However, they do much more than that, though. Archivists preserve original records that are useful to society and help people get at those records. If that sounds interesting, wait until you see the website: “So You Want To Be An Archivist?”

Please let me know what you think of the topic.

    I interviewed for an archival job at my local NARA branch a few years back, and it was neat to see the air flow control, white gloves, and huge tables for maps. It did seem very mysterious – and important. Are you going to interview archivists and post videos? I look forward to seeing your final project.
