Everyday at my internship, I can’t help but think about improvements and changes that need to be made in the system. One of the biggest hurdles is how to attempt to initiate change within an institution lacking in resources and in which the decision-makers may not be receptive to suggestions, let alone suggestions from someone farther down the totem pole, such as the lowly intern. At the Granger Collection, change is not a word that is tossed around very often and as a result, all things digital have suffered (recall the problems I presented in class). I can think of many feasible improvements that can be instituted immediately to improve the situation but the fact of the matter is, the current methods produce enough results that any suggestions are not really being considered. Is this a lost cause? What can you do?
