Our Summer Students over the past few years have been a welcome addition to our staff and have worked very hard on various projects.
Brandon is a recent high school graduate with an Order of Merit from Happy Valley-Goose Bay, and is currently in the process of earning his Certificate in the field of Office Administration. He will be employed with the Labrador Institute until the end of July 2013. Starting off as a mere Library Monitor, he waited and waited for an opportunity to open the gates. Then after coming into contact with MUN, he was appointed as a Library Assistant. Being born and raised in Labrador, he is committed to putting his office skills to work for the Labrador Institute and is determined to work hard for the information his team needs. During his personal time, Brandon has a major interest in politics and journalism. He enjoys chess, writing fiction and is happy to be aboard the Labrador Institute team and plans to bring his knowledge to the table in full.
Catherine is a current summer student working in the Labrador Institute archive until August 2013. She will be helping to develop the archival collections and working on a digital finding aid. Catherine completed her Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology at St.Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia. She is currently pursuing her Masters of Information in Library and Information Science at the University of Toronto. Catherine hopes to one day work in a library or archive and is excited to learn all she can while here in the Labrador Institute's library and archive.
Rebecca was our 2012 summer student and spent the summer doing various clerical duties around the Labrador Institute office. She was a great help in getting documents organized for a Workshop and organized materials in the Labrador Institute library.

Rebecca also spent time working on the scrapbooks made by Tim Borlase.
