SHI welcomes Archives Intern Mary Brooks

SHI welcomes Archives Intern Mary Brooks! Mary moved to Alaska from Colorado and enrolled in college in 2008. She received her B.A. in Social Sciences and interned with SHI last year. She is presently admitted to San Jose State University Masters in Archives and Records Administration program.

Mary says her goals are "to deepen knowledge of cultural heritage through examination of the varied and rich sources of information that come to the archives from many sources; catalog and protect the information for posterity; and determine appropriate avenues and facilitate pathways of said information for consumption by individuals and institutions. Presently the archival work that I am doing at SHI is a continuation of, if you will, a deepening of my knowledge of Southeast Alaskan Peoples with an eye on how technology can assist the Peoples, especially the youth, in coming to a fuller and more experiential understanding of their cultural heritage."
