The Museum of the City of New York has assumed management of
the Seaport Museum and now seeks library school students interested in an
archives internship. Interns will work
with two archivists and will assist with inventorying, assessing, and providing
a basic level of physical and intellectual control for a collection of photographs,
prints, ship plans and personal papers. Interns
will work with the museum’s archival collection and will have the opportunity
to gain experience in cataloging, handling fragile objects, re-housing objects,
collection processing, and/or writing basic finding aids or collection guides.
Interns are required for a minimum commitment of one full
day a week (7 hours), scheduled during the Monday - Friday workweek.
Internships are unpaid. Candidates must
be currently enrolled in a Masters program for Library Science. Interns
must be able to lift boxes weighing up to 40 pounds. Students with a focus in Archival Studies are
encouraged to apply.
To be considered for this
opportunity, please send a cover letter and resume to Anne DiFabio, Assistant
