Shein’s presentation  illustrates how UNLV Special Collections is improving collection access and raising its profile on campus by building bridges with the history and public history departments.  “In the spirit of SAA's Best Practices for Internships, we offer meaningful employment and professional development for graduate students.”  Students create DACS-compliant descriptions and learn practical, transferrable skills, while improving the quality and increasing the quantity of the institution’s online finding aids.  The poster outlines project management and intern oversight.
