Digitization Project Intern
The Antique Boat Museum is undergoing an extensive archival digitization project beginning with the digitization of one specific collection from the archives, known as the Gar Wood collection. The intern would work with the assistant curator to scan and create metadata for each item in this collection. The intern would gain practical, hands-on digitizing experience with archival materials while learning some of the opportunities and challenges that arise in doing original cataloging of unprocessed collections.
This internship would be ideal for a student pursuing a master’s degree in library/information science, or museum studies who has an interest in digitization or cataloging. The candidate should be detail-oriented, work well with others and be self-motivated and work with limited supervision after appropriate training. The internship is for 35 hours per week onsite at the Antique Boat Museum.
Housing is provided as well as a modest stipend.
