I am a library science student looking to specialize in archives. I have just one problem: I have asthma. When I work with archival materials in my internship I don't usually have a big problem (so far), but I do have occasionally bad flare ups.
My health is obviously first and foremost my number one priority, but this is something I love doing and I just don't want to give it up if I don't have to. I didn't know if any of you out there has a similar problem...if so, have you found it to be an obstacle to your career as an archivist?
Any thoughts on this are welcome and appreciated.
