Mastering Archives

With the memories of Hannon Library when it was freshly built in her head, SOU graduate Erin Ferrarelli returned to the place where she spent countless study hours, as our newest Special Collections intern.     

For Erin, it’s an interesting experience to work at the place where she spent so much time as a student and patron. She tells us, “It’s kind of cool to be behind the scenes at the library I used to study at.”

Erin Ferrarelli, Special Collections Intern

Erin started interning with Hannon Library this year, after searching through a few local internships and finding none that met her grad school requirements. That’s when she found Hannon Library, which was a refreshing experience for her. She says, “I love it, everybody’s been super nice. I’ve had questions, but they’ve answered all of them, and everybody has been really accommodating. I’ve really enjoyed it.”

Erin is going to San Jose State University to get a master’s degree in archival records, a degree that prepares students to be archivists and certified records managers, among other things. For Erin, working as an intern in Hannon Library has shown her that she’s following the right career path.

“I’m actually gaining confidence that I’m kind of in the right field, because I enjoy sitting here creating finding aids and enjoy doing high-maintenance and detail-orientated work.”

We here at Hannon Library are proud to help Erin reach the next step in her journey.
