Throughout the course of my time here at the Museum, I hope to learn more about the history of the Sunshine Coast, as well as further my understanding about what happens behind the scenes. Having little prior experience in archival/curatorial studies, the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives is a fantastic place for me to gain knowledge in the processes that are taken to keep collections and exhibits cared for. During the summer, I will have the opportunity to learn more about research procedures, collections care/documentation, and database software. I’ll also be putting out blog posts on varying topics, including Nursing on the Sunshine Coast.
I hope that my time here at the Sunshine Coast Museum and Archives will be a great way to learn more about the community that so many of us are lucky enough to call home.
Drop by the museum Wednesday to Sunday and say hi!
