Lab Report Spring 2014: Undergrads in the lab

The Lab hosts several work-study students each year. Last term, Karen worked on data entry for Itinera (and helpfully logged bugs as she went); this semester Dan returns (third year running) to help with Drupal, building Collective Access features, and is assisting Natalie build a database in Filemaker. Piero, who is planning on studying business but recently has found himself increasingly intrigued by Mexican modernism, has been scanning and cataloguing the images to support teaching, including for Jennifer Josten and all the pictures from Terry Smith’s textbook, Contemporary Art: World Currents. He’s also been tapped to handle all our social media (more below). Two “First Experiences in Research” (FE-R) students were also sent over from the Office of Undergraduate Research, to do, well, undergraduate research. Alex has been supervising their introduction to research resources, the Grand Tour, Itinera, close reading, and data entry. Everyone laughs a lot and I have discovered that working through heavy interpretation problems collaboratively helps solve the problems faster. Sara and Rose slip in and out too, working on an e-book that will function as a tour guide for art on campus.
