Happy Friday! It has been a very busy past couple of weeks for me. My Edgewood Tales special studies project and my internship are way more time intensive than I originally thought they’d be and I’m hustling to stay on top of the projects. But, I’m really liking everything and already learning so much about paper-based and born digital archival collections. I know it will be a great semester even though it’ll be hectic.
This weekend, I’ll be continuing my search for historical records for my Edgewood project and cataloging more photos for my internship, but I’ll definitely make the time to enjoy the nice weather here in San Francisco!
Here’s a few links for your weekend. Have a great one!
