Archiving AK, Season 2, episode 5: Wrangell Saint Elias National Park and The Great Basin Institute

A new episode: this one is the 5th in our October 2021 Archives Month reboot of our podcast. In this episode, Arlene talks with Desiree Ramirez, Alissa Gardner, and Chris Warner. Desiree is the museum specialist at Wrangell – St. Elias National Park and Preserve, Alissa and Chris are with The Great Basin Institute. The Great Basin Institute provides opportunities for people to get experience in natural and cultural heritage work throughout the United States and they’re partnering with Wrangell St. Elias Park to allow the Park to make more of their archival collection accessible. In this episode we talk about that project, the types of materials held in the archives at Wrangell St. Elias, The Great Basin Institute and what they do, and quite a bit about these types of positions for entry level and early career archivists (and maybe a few of us not-so-early archivists too?)

Mentioned in this episode:

Wrangell – St. Elias National Park and Preserve

The Great Basin Institute

The job opening for the 3 month research associate position at Wrangell – St. Elias
