Project Title:

Vogue Digital Archive Project



My primary goal entering the Condé Nast Archive—as an intern for the Vogue Digital Archive Project—was to acquire practical experience working in a corporate library.  I desired to learn about how this archive used digital and information technology to both organize and enhance its materials.  Taking what I have learned from courses at SILS thus far, and my previous knowledge of art history, fashion, and magazine production, I hoped to utilize my theoretical understanding of digital librarianship into real-world practice.
