Records Management Internship
Intern Francesca was the Records Management Intern in Fall 2019. She provided incredibly efficient assistance throughout her Records Management internship. Her project consists of inventorying all of the historic site files maintained by Facilities - Historic Properties, as well as archiving the pre-2010 project files. Her incredible work greatly benefits Facilities & Risk Management as it ensures our file inventories are up to date and comprehensive, as well as makes room for future incoming files. Her archiving the pre-2010 project files has also contributed to the department's goal for a concrete departmental records retention schedule, as we establish the retention parameters for our department files.
