The Newberry

I interned at the Newberry for one year in the Special Collections Department. I cataloged between 1,000 and 2,000 maps. Rand McNally had donated their entire road map collection (approximately 11,000 items) to the Newberry and I was part of a team that helped catalog it. After about 6 months I began cataloging atlases from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. I had a great experience and I got to go in this great building all the time.
