Internship - Smithsonian

*SIL Latino Publications Selection Intern*:

The intern will aid in the selection and processing of Spanish language
titles from the Smithsonian Libraries collections for digitization. The
intern will be responsible for working with the heads of our History, Art,
and Anthropology libraries, and with select SI curatorial staff as
recommended by the librarians, to analyze our Spanish language collections
and prioritize titles for digitization. The selection list will focus on
public domain (out of copyright) titles in Spanish, as well as public domain
titles in other languages which are frequently cited by scholarship in areas
related to Latino studies. To create the list, curatorial expertise and
vetted bibliographies in Latino studies (where available) will be considered
primary selection tools. Selection of supporting non-Spanish language
titles will also consider the relative availability of the titles to the
scholarly community.

For this paid internship we seek someone with a strong Spanish language
background (required) currently enrolled in a Latino/Hispanic studies or
history program, or MLS program. The internship begins August 1st and lasts
4 weeks. Internship can be completed either onsite in Washington, DC or
virtually with regular online communications with internship coordinators.
Interns receive a stipend of $500.00 per week.

Application deadline is *June 12th.*
