Library Projects

Between work and school I’ve the opportunity to work on some interesting projects. Each page below details more information on each project as well as provides a link to the project site if applicable.

At work, I started a circulating board game collection at the Delaware County District Library. This collection houses 93 modern board games and has been very popular since it’s launch in early February 2015. The collection is also underway to expand to include role playing game books as well.

During the fall of 2015, I worked as an archives intern at Otterbein University in Westerville, OH. As a part of this internship, I was required to keep a log of my activities and work towards completing 150 hours of on site work towards my career goals. The information about this internship and the work I did can be found here.

In school I’ve completed three projects I’m proud to share. The first isI did in my Reference and Research Methods for Local History and Genealogy course. This project has be examining the lives of Civil War soldiers in from the 4th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry from Delaware County, OH. The next is an Omeka site detailing a collection of Boy Scout patches completed for my Digital Image and Collection Management course. The second is a website dedicated to the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier in Philadelphia, PA. This website was created for a special topics course called Cultural Heritage Informatics.

Lastly, the project that largely started me on a career path in libraries was the initial digitization of high school yearbooks and city directories from the local history room of the Massillon Public Library in Massillon, OH. This project showed me a part of librarianship I had never considered prior to working at MPL.
