I have been a volunteer at the Archives and Special Collections Centre since the beginning of July, working on the Stanley Kubrick Archive. Being a Set Design for Screen graduate and a filmmaker myself, I highly enjoy being in a film related environment and have a lot of respect for Stanley Kubrick as a director and his artistic and beautiful approach to filmmaking. Since becoming a volunteer I have developed a number of skills needed to work in an environment that involves the care and documentation of such an important collection. The tasks involved include cataloguing, handling and archiving the work from the films and personal items of Stanley Kubrick, updating the archive system, noticing errors in the system and using research skills to investigate, identify and catalogue material. I have gained experience using CALM, the archive’s choice of cataloguing system – understanding reference codes, navigating items, editing and adding entries.
