I have been cataloguing Norman Dott’s case files which was a whole new concept to me as I had never dealt with patient records before. My whole experience has been so captivating and beneficial; it has provided me with such valuable skills, especially for archival work in the future.
During the 10 weeks I have been working on a project to conserve and re-house items from a collection of letters, legal documents and title deeds relating to the Royal Edinburgh Infirmary. I have had an amazing time here at the University and have learnt so much! I really feel like a part of the team.
Taking on volunteers and interns is a chance for experienced people with developed careers to pass on the knowledge and experience that university studies alone cannot give.
