The Graduate Fellows work alongside full-time staff to process special collections. Processing collections involves sorting and organizing, creating inventories and making decisions about what can be digitized. Inventories and descriptions of a collection are posted in the Rocky Mountain Online Archive and digitized items are posted in New Mexico Digital Collections.

In order to recognize this important work by students, University Libraries hosts a Colloquium showcasing the work. This year presentations will be made in two Zoom sessions on April 13 and April 15.
