I'm very pleased to introduce our readers to HC&A's Student Assistant, Max Johnson. Max earned a B.A. in Literary Studies/Russian from Beloit College, and is now a student in San Jose State University's MLIS program. He came to us with great experience as a library assistant and volunteer, and is now looking forward to pursuing a career in archives.
We were all very, very happy to have Max join our department in January. While Max's responsibilities are diverse and numerous, his work in filling scanning orders, paging materials for researchers, and supporting reference work have made us all wonder how we ever did it without him. I was very pleased when Max told me that he's interested in blogging, and we'll be posting his first contribution to the blog shortly.
