Special Collections welcomes Aramis Sanchez as our John A. Lowe III ’73 Special Collections Fellow for the 2018-2019 year. The fellowship is designed to promote diversity in the library profession by introducing recent Williams graduates from underrepresented groups to a career in Special Collections librarianship. During their year fellows are introduced to a wide variety of professional activities in archives and rare book libraries, to professional development opportunities, and (optionally) to developing a portfolio for application to a graduate program in Library Science or an allied profession.
Aramis is processing collections in the College Archives and Chapin Library, providing standardized finding aids and catalog records that allow students, faculty, and other researchers to discover our collections. He is also serving in our inaugural cohort of alumni oral history ambassadors, expanding the reach of the Archives to document the widest possible range of Williams experiences.
Aramis is 2017 graduate of Williams College with a dual major in English and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and a concentration in Latino/a Studies.
