I am currently getting my MLIS, and I have been working a paid records management internship for a while. By the time it is over, I will have one year's experience. I wasn't expecting to fall into RM, but I feel that the experience has been mostly positive. However, I would much rather work at an archives or museum eventually.
As a records management intern, I work more with current records and typically focus more on the importance of disposal and legality than long-term care and historical context.
I'm wondering, though, if people think of RM as being similar to archives. My boss actually used to work as an archivist, but I don't know if the transition from RM to archives is as easy. Any ideas?
