My poster presentation highlights my undergraduate student experience processing and describing an archival film collection, and my summer 2020 digital internship in which I encoded a EAD finding aid on the same small film project. I completed this task without the University having a Library School program, an Audiovisual Archivist, or an ongoing budget for the project. This experience has allowed me to find common ground while studying Public History, Museum Studies, Cinema Studies, and Anthropology. I have learned skills and the practical application of best standards and archival theory. After my experience with the film collection, I want to pursue a career in Audiovisual Archiving.
