Jean Turner is Falvey Memorial Library’s Digital Library intern for the spring semester. A graduate of Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, she has a bachelor’s degree in history with a minor in anthropology. As an undergraduate, Jean worked in the college archives.
Jean is in the process of applying to library science and graduate history programs. Meanwhile, in addition to her Falvey internship, she also works at the Swarthmore College Peace Collection.
Jean says she acquired her interest in history from reading Victorian and Edwardian historical fiction. Her hobbies are singing in her church choir, playing with her two dogs and having brunch with friends. She also played rugby as an undergraduate.
A native of Havertown (Pa.), Jean first came to Villanova University for her high school graduation ceremonies. Her next visit to campus was for her internship job interview.
The Digital Library intern position requires experience in the digital library field and familiarity with general library activities, cataloging procedures and working with historic artifacts.
