Welcome to our Student Interns
Three undergraduate students have joined the School of History, Classics and Archaeology for summer 2015 in an exciting internship opportunity. (Published 8 June 2015)
The School extends a warm welcome to Laura Falkiner-Rogers, Pippa Carter and Sam Rust as they embark on their summer internships across a number of roles.
Developing the School’s book collections
Third year MA in Classics student Laura Falkiner-Rogers will be cataloguing and improving access to the School’s book collections, which are held in the Student Research Rooms.
Working alongside Academic Liaison Librarian, Margaret Forrest, Laura will carry out a stock check of the books and will complete the cataloguing for three collections; Archaeology, Sellar and Goodhart (Classics) and the Scottish History Collection.
Laura brings experience of working as a Student Research Room volunteer to her role.
Digitising the Sir William Fraser collection
Pippa Carter, a third year MA History and History of Art student, will also be working with Margaret on the digitisation and promotion of the School's collection of Sir William Fraser Facsimiles.
Pippa too is familiar with the School’s collections having volunteered in the Student Research Room over the last academic year.
This programme of digitisation is already underway and some of the collection is available now on the School website.
A skeletal database for Archaeology
Sam Rust, a third year BSc in Computer Science student, joins us from Informatics. Sam will be developing the Skeletal Database for Archaeology and will work alongside Linda Fibiger and Karen Howie.
Supervised career experience
The internships last for eight weeks and are part of a University-wide initiative, Employ.ed on Campus, arranged by the Careers Service.
As well as great work experience, the Careers Service provide a network of support to students throughout the programme.
