This professional internship experience spanned the summer months of 2022 and focused on a wall-to-wall inventory of the Bell County Museum’s off-site collection storge facility. The inventory consisted mainly of glass and kitchenware, farming tools, medical objects, and oversized objects like furniture. The work included updating PastPerfect entries, photographs, locations, rehousing, and documenting Found In Collection (FIC) objects. I also participated in the construction of an in-house exhibit and set-up of a traveling exhibit. To gain a better understanding of the museum’s relationship with the community and its goals I attended a board meeting and collections committee meeting. This report provides details to the work completed during the internship.
