Amy Orlik Internship’10


Binder #: 33
Major: Environmental Studies, History
Passion: Environmental Sustainability
Organization: Lake Bloomington, Ames Library

Project Summary: I spent my junior year May Term interning under Meg Miner, one of the librarians at Ames Library. During the past month, I have done research on the history of Lake Bloomington to help Meg develop a potential museum exhibit that may begin in Ames and hopefully move onto the McLean County Historical Society some time down the road. Knowing there was a time crunch during May Term, we decided to focus on the very beginning of Lake Bloomington and look into why it was built and the issues that revolved it.
