For the last week in March, the Libraries hosted spring intern Diane Kaczor. Kaczor is a student in the graduate program of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. She received a B.A. in communications with a business minor from Northwestern University in 1997, and holds a digital strategy and innovation certificate and an e-business strategy certificate from the University of Chicago. Kaczor is currently employed at SRDS in Des Plaines, IL, as a Special Projects Coordinator and Archivist, where she performs editorial and data analysis projects, completes market research and consulting for clients, and manages archives dating back to 1918.
Kaczor’s internship with the Libraries took her to several branches in Washington, DC and Suitland, MD. She met with librarians in the National Museum of American History Library, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden Library, the Museum Support Center Library, and the American Art and National Portrait Gallery Library. Kaczor also spent time viewing special collections in the Joseph F. Cullman 3rd Library of Natural History. —Liz O'Brien
