Christina Adams has been working as an intern behind the scenes in the Library & Archives since the 14th August.

 

She has always had a strong interest in natural history, and keeps up to date with current developments in her spare time. A farming friend has encouraged her to be interested in the subject of Lepidoptera (butteflies and moths).

 

After completing a degree in Physics and Astronomy, Christina worked in a laboratory environment, but soon realised it wasn't her 'cup of tea', and has since been working at a specialist gaming store. She admits to being a fully-fledged 'gaming geek'!

 

Christina began to look for a career route where she could use her degree, but in a less direct route. A friend suggested being a Librarian, what a perfect mix of her love of books and making information accessible to others!

 

She spotted an advert on the current vacancies page of the Natural History Museum's website for a seven week internship within the Library & Archives. What an ideal opportunity to overlap her science knowledge, customer services and interest in printed books.christina.JPG

 

Christina was over the moon to be offered the position and started back in mid-August. She has loved her time here so much, that she has requested for a week's extension to her original time frame and hopes that she can blend in so well she never has to leave!

 

 

What types of things has Christina been involved in so far?

 

In the Archives - Researching and indexing a collection of newspaper clippings about the Natural History Museum and former parent organisation, the British Museum.

 

Working alongside the Assistant Records Manager, repackaging paintings and documents in the store.

 

In the Library - Cataloguing as part of the dedicated cataloguing team based in the library. This Christina admits she found this difficult initially but is now completely converted! She loves the fact that each book you pick up is never the same and always offers something interesting. This includes entertaining Victorian books and fold out maps, with each one offering the temptation of flicking through before you start cataloguing.

 

Transcribing letters written by Alfred Russel Wallace, as part of the Wallace Correspondence Project. This Christina loved, and likened to be being a detective: looking through private letters, seeing snippets of someone's life, and trying to decode their Victorian handwriting. In two letters alone, she recalls learning a huge amount about plants.

 

What has she enjoyed the most so far?

 

Definitely the transcribing, as Wallace is a personal hero of hers, but also learning about the collections the Library has. This includes being shown vibrant pieces of artwork that are more than two hundred years old, and seeing beautiful books, whilst learning about why they are important.

 

What is Christina's tip to anyone else interested in volunteering behind the scenes in the NHM?

 

Go for it: it is well worth it! A good experience, and an opportunity to contribute to the Natural History Museum, with the feeling that you have played a small part in science.  The Museum, and Library in particular, is a really nice place to work, where you feel like a member of staff, rather than just an intern or volunteer.

 

 

Thank you to Christina for all her hard work, it has been a pleasure having her as part of the Library & Archives team. We hope that she continues to enjoy her last two weeks with us.

Like all areas of the Natural History Museum, the Library & Archives are proud to take part in the Volunteer and Work Experience programme.

 

This week we had two new additions to the team, Christina (intership) and Jessica (work experience).

 

Jessica has joined us for two weeks, she is a 16 year old student from St. Michael's Catholic Grammar School, Finchley.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In her first four days Jessica has already been busy working on a number projects and getting involved in the work of the other Library & Archives staff.

 

jessica2.JPG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

She has been listing and describing birds from two volumes of watercolours from the collection of Margaret Bushby Lascelles Cockburn (1829-1928), an english lady resident of India, until her death at the age of ninety nine.

 

A task she has already completed!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition Jessica has been working on an album from a collection of Earth Sciences (specifically palaeontology) themed stamps. As is often the case the stamps were collected and put into country order, so Jessica has been indexing the individual subjects (dinosuars, fossils etc) so that researchers can unlock the collection.

 

jessica1.JPG

 

 

 

 

 

During her stay Jessica will be given the opportunity to learn about the work of different members of the Library & Archives team, as well as attending a Nature Live talk.

 

We hope Jessica enjoys her stay with us, even though she has the dreaded GCSE exam results day during the two weeks!

Last week the Library & Archives had the pleasure once again, of taking part in the annual Young Graduates for Museums and Galleries programme.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We always love the mix of reactions the students give us to the collection they see!

 

 

 

 

Now in its eighth year, the scheme gives a group of 16-18 year old talented and gifted students from inner London, the opportunity to go behind the scenes of major Museum and Galleries in London.

 

 

YGMG8-055-31072012.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those instiututions involved are: the Natural History Museum, Tate, British Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum.

 

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                        They always listen intently and ask lots of questions

 

 

Twenty five students spent their day at the NHM behind the scenes, learning about the interesting work of the scientists and staff, with the hope that it would inspire some to want to work here.

 

At the end of the programme the students are given the opportunity to work at one of the organisations, on a summer internship during the holidays.

 

 

During their visit to the Library & Archives the students were shown examples from our special collections, including an original handwritten page by Charles Darwin from his On the Origin of Species manuscript draft and original artwork by Ferdinand Bauer (1760-1826), from the H.M.S. Investigator expedition to Australia, 1801-1803.

We hope they all enjoyed their day, as much as we enjoyed meeting them and showing them some of our gems.

 

Roll on YGMG 2013!
