Grace United Methodist Church records

Part of my summer internship here at the Michigan Tech Archives has been processing the Grace United Methodist Church records.  ‘Processing’  generally entails inventorying a collection, organizing it, and writing a finding aid that provides an overview of the contents.  Usually a finding aid will also give a brief history or background of the people or organizations that created the material. 

Stories from the Reference Desk

Here at the MTU Archives we help people with a wide variety of research topics.  As a recent graduate and summer intern in the Archives, working at the reference desk has been a great learning experience.  I didn’t quite know what to expect when I started here, but one thing my education prepared me for was the range of knowledge of what an archive is among patrons.
