Friends of the Libraries Sponsor New Internship Program

The Friends of the Libraries are sponsoring a new internship program for Wright State University students. The interns will develop a new video series called In The Archives.  The video series will be developed, written, recorded and produced by the student interns under the direction of Friends of the Libraries Board Member, Dr. Jennifer Ware.  The video series will feature unique items from the special collections, selected by University Libraries’ staff.  This advanced internship opportunity allows students to further refine their media production skills and gain new research experiences. The 3 – 7 minute videos will be placed online and made available to the University Libraries for educational and promotional purposes.

Meet the FOL student interns!

Major: Communications Studies
Why did you want to be a FOL student intern?
I wanted to work on this project not only for the experience in the field- but because of my background and passion in preserving history (specifically art history).
What are you most excited about with the project?
I am particularly interested to see the items that we will be filming episodes about as I am not certain of all the things the Wright State archives offer to students.

Why did you want to be a FOL student intern?
I wanted to be a FOL student intern so I could both utilize and hone my videography skills while building up a professional video portfolio.
What are you most excited about with the project?
For this project, I’m most excited about the opportunity to work with fascinating archival materials and artifacts, and help spread public awareness about everything that’s stored in the archives at WSU.
