This semester, we are happy to host two students from Durham College’s Library and Information Technician program who are able to get hands-on experience in the workplace while offering valuable assistance where we need the help. Read on to meet Nicole and Mary!
Hello, my name is Nicole Bray and I am a second year student in the Library and Information Program at Durham College. I chose to have a field placement at the Oshawa Museum & Archives after I saw Jennifer’s presentation for one of my classes. She made working at the archives sound fun and interesting. And everyone has certainly lived up to my first impression. At the moment I am working on the Education in Oshawa e-publication. It’s really interesting to read up about all the different schools that were once in Oshawa. I look forward to the rest of the time I’ll spend here at the Archives.
Hello all! My name is Mary Sherlock and I am a 2nd year Durham College student in the Library and Information Technician program. This is my last year in the program and I am excited for what the future may bring! I am here as a placement student in the archive and am loving every second of it so far! I have a great love for history, especially Canada’s history, which makes me all the more excited for my time here. This placement will give me a great opportunity to see if working in an archive or museum setting is something I wish to do after I graduate, also to gather as much educational experience as possible to apply towards school, work, and life.
