So for the past few months I have been considering trying to volunteer for the Provincial Archives of Alberta. I love the idea of using my knowledge and building experience working with collections. For me it would be a great way to spend time while I try and find a more permanent job.
So on two occasions I have offered to volunteer. Only to be told twice, no.
It was a “it’s us, not you” kind of discussion. They say they are revamping their volunteer program. Fine I can accept that and I am appreciative that things are not easily managed. Yet for the second time in four months it appears that they still have not sorted it out.
Any one else had this conundrum?
I think it is one of the strangest things I have seen. I think at the beginning of September I will go and make a nuisance of myself their, well not really, as there is some research I want to do there anyway. I found they have some pictures and other documents that may have significance to my history search.
Wish me luck.
