The Transmission of Information and Maintenance of Informational Media in a Private Elementary School
Irwin, Kenneth R.
It is in the nature of an internship to have two sets of goals. An employer hires a student to perform a particular job, while the student may be after a slightly different experience. This Senior Independent Project was no exception. My goal in taking the job at Kalamazoo Academy, a private elementary school, was to gain practical experience in library work beyond the education I received working for the Kalamazoo College library. This goal was open-ended, but I quickly discovered that my job entailed more than merely library science. Jobs at the Academy are defined by the rooms in which they are generally performed and by the students with whom they deal, but no employee is limited to the minimum expectations of the official job description. Rather, each faculty member works as part of the educational team in any capacity necessary.
