New Beginnings at Pack

This semester I will be interning at the Pack Library in downtown Asheville. So far I have met with my internship mentor Zoe, and worked five hours. So far there are a variety of differences from the Vance Birthplace. First, the Pack Library has a less structured scheduling system, as while it is open to the public, it is not hyper-focused at helping visitors as the Vance Birthplace is. So I can come in whenever is good for me and get to work. The work is also, as one might imagine, quite different. Rather than deal with visitors, I will be working with an archive. My first project will have me attacking a rather recent collection left by the Western North Carolina Aids Project writer, Michael Harney, also known as the Rubberman. Harney wrote a wide variety of articles in newspapers, which I have just finished organizing be publication and date. Now I will be going through the mass of other documentation that he left, attempting to organize it into different folders by theme, and then organize those be date.
