Photograph Archive Internship: National Baseball Hall of Fame

Spend a summer in Cooperstown, at the home of baseball!

Photograph Archive Internship Opportunity

The National Baseball Hall of Fame invites graduate students interested in pursuing an archival career and enrolled in an Archival, Library and Information Science, American History, Public History, or American Studies program, to apply for an internship in the photograph archive. The archive houses a variety of materials including: photographs, negatives, slides and a variety of other formats. Interns will have the opportunity to experience an archival environment outside of a traditional academic setting. Interns may gain experience in arrangement and description, basic preservation skills, cataloging, accession procedures, records and database management. This will help prioritize collections for further processing and conservation. Students may be asked to assist with archival reference requests.

The ten-week paid internship program begins in June and ends in August.

Winner of 2006-07 ARLIS/NA Internship Award Announced

The 2006 Internship Award of the Art Libraries Society of North America has been granted to Martha González Palacios. Ms. González Palacios plans to complete her MLIS degree in December at the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. She also has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, and a Bachelor of Architecture from the Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico City. The award provides $2500 in funding to support interning in a library or visual resources collection that supports the arts (as well as one year of complimentary membership in ARLIS/NA). During her studies Ms. González Palacios has had experience working in art libraries and other academic collections but plans to use the internship to gain experience with an architectural collection.

More than 60 submissions were received for this very competitive award. The Internship Award Subcommittee read many excellent applications. We wish to thank all of the applicants for their efforts and ask those eligible to apply again next year. It is exciting to see so many talented people eager to enter our profession. We encourage them to continue the pursuit of such promising careers.
