Preserving the Past...
My experiences while working at the Horry County Archives Center have enabled me to analyze historical data and create, manage and store metadata. The skills that I have acquired while working at the library have been crucial in my academic life; I would not have been able to create metadata spreadsheets and digitize historical artifacts for Coastal's Athenaeum Press if it had not been for my prior work with the Horry County Archives Center. The center's director, Ben Burroughs, has taught me the importance of maintaining professional friendships, what to expect when approaching various projects and how to view data from the historical perspective. I am excited to continue my work with the HCAC and to develop the skills required of me to be successful in the professional world.
