Grace May ’16 spent last summer as a junior fellow at the Library of Congress – one of 38 selected from 800 applicants. She was chosen in part because of hands-on experience she gained working with UMW’s Digital Archiving Lab.
May spent 10 weeks working on digital projects to make library materials more accessible to users online, including a display in the U.S. Presidential Inaugurations Collection. As part of her work, the history major got to see artifacts including President Lincoln’s inaugural Bible. She also worked on the website for the library’s main reading room.
