Library Intern: Joseph Thornton

August 5, 2013

It has been a fun and rewarding experience working with and getting to know Joseph through the SUL internship program. Joseph's 'home base' was Social Science Data and Software (SSDS) and staff members welcomed his help with a number of projects. Joseph blended in quickly and we soon learned that Joseph is remarkably versatile and always willing to learn new skills. Before long, he began supporting both SSDS and SUL IT services in Green!

Seven lucky students from Eastside College Preparatory School in East Palo Alto have earned a gig at the Stanford Libraries for a summer internship. The interns have been placed in different libraries from Green to Meyer, to Music and Biology.

I am Veronica Rubalcava and I am the co-coordinator for the internship program. When I heard about the internship program, I was pleased to know that an opportunity for first-generation college students was being offered.

[Update #1: I added links to the OnlineBooks site at UPenn for historic materials from the "United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations With Respect to Intelligence Activities" and "United States. National Security Agency -- History." OnlineBooks site pulls together digital material from HathiTrust and Internet Archive with items in your library's catalog. Very nice indeed! Thanks John Mark Ockerbloom at UPenn for the suggestion!]
