Thanks to funding from the Libraries Advisory Board, Special Collections welcomed a new 2015 summer intern cohort of UNLV graduate students this week who will be working on two important projects. Building on the work of our summer 2014 cohort, history graduate students Kayla McDuffie, Franklin Howard, John Grygo, and Angela Moor will continue work on manuscript collection finding aids using the ArchivesSpace archival collection management system. Their work will enable us to place many more manuscript collection guides (also known as finding aids) online, making them available to the public. Researchers will then be able to discover more of the rich historical material available in our collections. Joseph Belmonte, a graduate student in criminal justice, will be working on the Pit Boss Oral History Project  currently being conducted by Dave Schwartz, Director of the Center for Gaming Research in Special Collections. Just like last year's interns, the students will be blogging about their fun discoveries in Special Collections over the summer, so stay tuned!
