A fourth trip to continue scanning student files at the National Archives in Washington, DC is off to a snowy start. Dickinson College student interns Linda Genser ‘17, Joelle Paull ‘17, and Meghan Abercrombie ‘15 join Friends of the Library Intern Katie Clark, for a two week research trip. The team hopes to scan another 30 boxes of student files for the Carlisle Indian School Digital Resource Center.

Linda and Joelle have previously done work editing and posting scanned copies of student files to the website, so they are enjoying the opportunity to work with the original, physical documents. Meghan recently curated a small display of Carlisle Indian School publications for the Dickinson College Archives, and she is now excited to be learning more about the students themselves.
