Collection Accessioning

During my summer 2017 internship with the Shaker Historical Society, I was given the opportunity to accession a portion of the 2016 and 2017 collections for both their material collection and their archives. The director entrusted me to inventory each item, write descriptions, photograph, label items with accession numbers and uploaded the photos and other information into Past Perfect.

Not only did I gain a valuable set of skills I had a wonderful time interning with the Shaker Historical Society. So much so that I’m surprised they didn’t charge me to be there.
