Jacob Zaborowski, NYU Libraries - Archival Collections Management, Spring 2016, Mellon

I interned at NYU Bobst Library in the Archival Collections Management department, which is dedicated to managing NYU's archival/special collections. As part of a Mellon Foundation-funded initiative, "Archiving Composers' Websites," I performed Quality Control/Assurance on a collection of 170 websites curated by the music librarian of Bobst Library. I was trained in accessing reports from the Internet Archive's web-based application Archive-It, as well as websites archived using their software Wayback Machine. In addition to becoming familiar with Archive-It, I developed my skills in managing collections of web-based and born-digital content as well as creating preservation documentation.
