About you I am a 2010 graduate of UCLA MLIS program. I have been involved with Mayme Clayton for 2 1/2 years, and was hired in January 2011 as the archivist/registrar/volunteer/intern/reasearch coordinator. My job as the archivist goes way further than I ever imagined. I instruct on how to catalog, preserve and educate the public on our diverse collection. Since we are an up and coming non profit, we have the opportunity to have a new experience each and every day. Our collection is from one woman, Mayme Clayton, and it was stored in her garage in Los Angeles, California. We are still trying to figure out everything that is in the collection of approx. 2-3 million items. It is an archivist's dream job, and I love it!
