Description: Under the supervision of the Chief Archivist, the Archives Interns will be exposed to multiple levels of archives management and gain hands-on experience working with manuscript and photographic collections. They will conduct specific processing projects; will document and refine existing procedures; and will contribute to the development of new policies in the archives. Processing projects will include rehousing, arranging, and describing archival collections as part of and in preparation for a larger digitization effort.
The interns will also participate in the Research Library’s reference desk schedule, respond to remote research queries, and develop collections-focused posts for social media. A knowledge of American history, literature, maritime history, or geography is advantageous, yet not required.
