the Assistant Archivist is typically involved in these discussions. In addition to the Director and Pan Am 103 Archivist,
and the Assistant Archivist for Pan Am 103, the Archives occasionally uses both graduate and undergraduate student
assistance. These students may be employed through work-study, fellowship, assistantship, or internship programs. The
level and type of support received from students varies by major, previous experience, and class standing. Graduate
students typically assist with processing, creation of EAD finding aids, and exhibits. Undergraduate students have
assisted in scanning and digitization projects.

No one is dedicated to this collection, on its own. We have one grant archivist, two interns, and two paid student
assistants who work on the other USN JLS/OLS collections. A staff archivist organized this collection on two occasions,
once with the assistance of a student assistant.
Occasional exhibits and public programs also use the endowments to fund an annual research grant for
external scholars.
