October 4th - 29th (weeks 5-9)

The past month has been a bit slow. Dr. Nuwer and Shugana have been attending events and conferences and "Life in a Snapshot" exhibit came to a close on the 29th. I spent my time at the practicum making flyers, answering phones, and transferring data from government e-publications to an excel file for upload to the KRC CONTENTdm directory. This past Friday was a great experience. I took down the "Life in a Snapshot" and "Art at Gulf Park" exhibits and removed the screws. Diane Ross, the creator of the "Captured Moments" exhibit we will be opening November 2nd, came around 11 a.m. on Friday with matted photographs that were to be hung behind plexi-glass covering. It was a great experience and there were plenty of hands to get the exhibit hung within 4 hours. I packed up the previous exhibits because Dr. Nuwer was moving it back to the Hattiesburg campus. I also met with Ken, store manager of Papa Johns, who agreed to donate food to the exhibit opening to alleviate entertaining costs of the opening. I will post later this week on the opening of the "Captured Moments" exhibit at noon on Nov. 2
