How do student employees in archival settings transform their institutions? How are students transformed by working in archival settings, whether or not they go on to have careers in archives and special collections? This participatory facilitated discussion session focuses on hiring, training, managing, supervising, and mentoring student employees and how these efforts can make a lasting and valuable impact on the institution, the students, and the staff working together.
