Final Day of The Activist Archive: SNCC Collections in the Rubenstein Library

The Activist Archive will displays selections from print and manuscript collections documenting the history of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) held in the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. SNCC was one of the key organizations of the Civil Rights Movement, and the only one organized and led by young people. Working alongside local people in the rural South, SNCC activists worked on issues like voting rights, education, economic empowerment, and the emergence of black power. The personal papers exhibited reflect the Rubenstein's commitment to collecting social movements and activism.

Welcome To Our New Intern: Phebe Pankey

Preservation Underground - Fri, 2018-06-15 14:32

This week the Conservation Services Department was joined by our first ever HBCU Library Alliance Summer intern, Phebe Pankey! Duke is one of five library conservation labs participating in this program to host an eight-week internship in preservation and conservation this summer.

Phebe is a junior at Winston Salem State University and has been involved in libraries most of her life through volunteering and community activities.  She is excited to learn more about conservation and this internship is a way to continue developing and expanding her library skills.

Phebe has jumped right into the lab workflows, learning to construct some of the quicker enclosures like CoLibri sleeves and 4-flap boxes. She has also been gaining experience with basic paper treatments, like humidification and flattening.

Phebe works with Conservation Specialist Rachel Penniman on humidification of paper.

At the conclusion of the eight weeks, interns are expected to take some of the skills they have learned back to their home institution to implement a library preservation project, building on the success of their summer experiences with an opportunity to perform meaningful work preserving significant HBCU library collections at their institution.

These internships would not have been possible without the help of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the University of Delaware College of Arts and Science, the Department of Art Conservation at the University of Delaware, and the Winterthur Museum, Garden, and Library (DE). Thanks also to Debbie Hess Norris and Melissa Tedone at the University of Delaware.

We will continue sharing more about this internship as it progresses, but for now: Welcome to Duke, Phebe!
