Kendra Hurt recently graduated with a Masters of Library Science from the University of Maryland this past May. In the spring she completed an Instructional Design internship with the Biodiversity Heritage Library & Smithsonian Institution Libraries (SIL).

During her internship she spent time on a project to improve the instructions for searching and downloading files and images from the Biodiversity Heritage Library’s online archives. You can read more about her experiences on the Smithsonian Libraries “Unbound” blog here.
