Uncompensated internships are available
in the summer only in the Collections Department; school credit may be
available through your university. Qualified applicants should have
an interest in historic preservation, archival research, education,
museum management, development or public relations. The internship
is open to both undergraduate and graduate students.
Interns may be asked to help
with one or more of the following projects, and work either
independently or in conjunction with the collection staff. Possible
projects may include the following.
Preservation. A large number of objects in our collection
need to be examined for proper inventory and preservation.
Photographing Objects. Every object needs a clear, detailed
photograph in its file for identification purposes.
Archives and Photographs. We have a large collection of old
photographs and archival materials that need to be examined and
We need help updating our collections database
All tasks need to be approached in a methodical, careful and
thorough fashion. Accuracy and care are more important than speed.
Contact Ginger Berni, Collection Manager, for more information, or send a
resume with covering letter detailing your areas of interest.
