MK Gavin presents her research at the Library of Congress

Maggie Burke, MK Gavin, and Caitlin Oakley showcased their research findings at the Library of Congress.
Cailtin and Maggie work for Rare Book and Special Collections Division this summer.
MK Gavin works for the Law Library.
If you are in DC area, this is a great opportunity to see students’ summer
research results and to get ideas about future internship and research

JULY 26, 9 am. – 3 pm.
ROOM U 119

Working under the direction of Library curators and specialists in various
divisions, the Junior Fellows explore and increase access to the
institution’s unparalleled collections and resources. They are exposed to a
broad spectrum of library work: copyright, preservation, reference, access
standards, information management and digital initiatives. Summer interns have
identified hundreds of historical, literary, artistic, cinematic and musical
gems in the course of their work, representing the Library’s rich cultural,
creative and intellectual assets. The 2012 class will showcase their findings
and work at this event.
