Links to My Essay

Oregon State University Library Archives

I've been offered and accepted a position working part-time at the Oregon State University Archives located in the Valley Library in Corvallis. I begin this week and will be working there Wednesday and Thursday evenings and the Saturday afternoons I'm not attending class.
