So today is my last day working as a CLIRWater CCEPS Fellow. For the past two days I have been working on my presentation displaying the work I’ve done this semester as well as continuing metadata for those Chaffey Letters. It might be a surprise, but my end of the semester presentation is going to be on… drum rolls please..
The Chaffey Letters!!
I’ve spent so much time with these letters and learning about the Chaffey Brothers, the Inland Empire and Ontario that I’m just waiting to burst with all that information.
Overall, I am thankful for the experience I have had at the library. I have always considered myself a history buff and while working with these documents I have enjoyed learning about the history of Southern California as well as the ability to work with archives. I’ve learned new skills, technical and job skills.
thanks for reading,
