Hello, I'm Rebecca Franz. I am currently in my last semester at Simmons College where I am pursuing an MS in Library and Information Science with a concentration in Archives Management.
Prior to enrolling at Simmons, I received a BFA in painting and drawing from Wichita State University and my MFA in painting from The San Francisco Art Institute.
I am thrilled to be at the Congregational Library where I will be picking up where Katherine Williamson left off on the Small Collections Digital Exhibition.
The internships I have completed prior to coming to the Congregational Library reflect my background in the fine arts. From processing scientific illustrations to scanning and cataloging 35mm slides, most of the materials I have handled have been visually based. I am therefore particularly excited about the wealth of textual documents that the Small Collections has to offer.
This project promises to be an exciting, challenging experience... everything I had hoped for and more!
