What are you looking forward to?
I have been working in the Joseph Moore Museum collections for one year now. I am looking forward to seeing how what I learned there will hold up in a more strenuous work environment. I’m also looking forward to being able to see all of the specimens I will be working with.
What goals do you have for the internship?
I will learn more about caring for and preserving collections. I hope to be able to learn quickly so that I can take initiative and carry out tasks independently.
What do you hope to achieve with this internship?
I hope to gain more tangible collection management skills that I can use when I return to the Joseph Moore Museum and in my future. I hope these skills will give me knowledge to make independent judgments regarding the management of fluid collections, as a certain degree of initiative is necessary within collections work.
