The Museum of the City of New York has assumed management of the Seaport Museum and now seeks library school students interested in library internships. Interns will work with two librarians/archivists and will assist with a large inventory and cataloging project for the museum’s collection of books. Interns will have the opportunity to gain experience using WorldCat, the museum’s internal database, and assisting with a potential weeding project.
Interns are required for a minimum commitment of one full day a week (7 hours), scheduled during the Monday-Friday work week. 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.
To be considered for this opportunity, please send a resume and cover letter to Anne DiFabio, Assistant Archivist, firstname.lastname@example.org.
