…California to Iowa, go!
afropunklibrarian asked: What made you want to be an archivist? I am still trying to figure out my specialization. When did it click?
I chose to specialize in special collections in order to have access to maintaining and preserving unique collections not found elsewhere. I enjoy the rare 1st edition Catcher in the Rye as found in UIUC’s “Rare Book & Manuscript Library [non-circulating], Call Number: 813 Sa33c, With dust jacket (first issue)”. I am consistently fascinated by the photos, manuscripts, correspondences, and film media found in the AFI Archives. Providing access to researchers who are writing books or making movies, it’s what I’d love to do for the rest of my life, check it out! “Preserving Hollywood at the American Film Institute: Spotlight on Ziba Zehdar“
Yet I am a working Librarian because there are not as many opportunities to work full time in archives… =(*
To be or not to be an Archivist.
That is the question
"Will You Please Be Quiet, Please?" Appropriate book title for a library… #lol #libraries #booktitles (at Langson Library (LLIB))

Check out this book I found! I’m going to miss interning with The UCI Libraries Special Collections & Archives. I had a very rewarding & educational experience these past months.
The UCI campus in the decade of the 80′s was a rad venue for seeing well-known bands of the time perform. Ever heard of Missing Persons, Oingo Boingo, or X? The Associated Students of the University of California in Irvine (ASUCI) invited groups such as these to provide entertainment to the campus community.
