We lucked out with intern Mike Wejchert. Mike will be working as the Library Assistant this summer. Mike is a climber, English student at Colorado College, and has proven to be an all-around big help at the library.
In his first week, Mike has already processed an enormous book donation (shown above), an equally enormous serials collection, answered a number of difficult reference questions (including one about iceberg climbing – he tracked down ice climber Will Gadd to get his input), and is writing an article for the Friends of the Library Newsletter.
Mike has a great attitude, tackles anything I throw at him, and his knowledge of climbing and mountaineering literature is nothing short of, well…amazing. AAC and CMC members can contact him at mwejchert@AmericanAlpineClub.org for beta on practically anything. Catch him before he’s gone. Welcome aboard, Mike!
