Second Internship Reflection

Over the last few months I have worked on creating a detailed calendar for social media posts, where staff can find suggestions for specific items to post. The social media team at the archives have used a number of different calendars that had one specific purpose, such as a calendar of artist birthdays or a general calendar sent out by the Smithsonian Institution. My task is to use these as a basis for my own calendar, and adding anything the archive has already digitized and made available on their public website. While tedious at times, I am enjoying the search through the digital collections for the items. There is already so much online that I find myself looking at items that appear even if they are not related to what I am looking for.
