The following is a final entry post by Juanita James.
I want to thank Dr. Bidlack and the Burke Library staff for giving me this opportunity to serve as an intern. I gained valuable knowledge about academic library management and about preservation of archival materials. I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to work on various projects, increasing my interest in management and academic libraries.
This internship has taught me a lot about myself, what I’m capable of, what I’m lacking, and what I need to improve on as a person and worker. I learned that I can make decisions in a managerial environment with confidence and ease and have knowledge in all aspects of the organization under my supervision.
I would like to thank you once again for this wonderful experience. I hope to keep in touch and perhaps to discuss with you steps I should take in the future to pursue a career in library and information center management. Once again, thank you for a terrific four months.
