Internship in Special Collections Cataloging

The graduate intern in Special Collections Cataloging will gain experience working with Getty’s unique research collections, which include archives of artists, architects, dealers and art historians; sketches and drawings; prints from the 16th to the 21st century; and rare photographs. The broad range of subject areas includes, but is not limited to art collectors and collecting, 20th-century architecture, video and performance art, Latin American art, and African American art. The Special Collections Cataloging Graduate Intern will work independently on an array of collections management activities and collaborate on team-based projects for legacy data cleanup, with work in multiple systems and tools related to archival collections management and cataloging. Specific assignments depend on the intern’s area of specialization, but tasks may include physical processing of collections, writing finding aids; maintaining processing plans; converting legacy PDF finding aids to EAD, creating collection-level and item-level catalog records; writing blog posts; and creating records in SNAC (Social Networks and Archival Context) to account for persons, families, and organizations in GRI archival holdings

Call for applications: Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF) Internship Award, 2020-2021

The Visual Resources Association Foundation (VRAF) is pleased to invite applications for the eighth VRAF Internship Award in visual resources and image management. This internship is generously funded by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation.

The VRAF Internship Award provides financial support for graduate students and recent graduates preparing for a career in visual resources and image management. The award grants $3,000 to support a period of internship in archives, libraries, museums, visual resources collections in academic institutions, or other appropriate contexts. It also provides $1,000 for professional development, and a one-year complimentary student membership in the Visual Resources Association.

Candidates should apply after developing a project with a specific collection and prospective supervisor. Priority will be given to applicants who submit projects that support art historical or related visual cultural heritage research and scholarship. The VRAF Internship Award Committee favors opportunities in which the intern may integrate skills acquired during the course of his or her academic training to manage a project from beginning to end, with the host institution receiving needed help in making valuable but hidden cultural collections visible. Projects that would not occur without funding for an intern may be given special consideration. A complete description of the internship and application instructions are available at: https://vrafoundation.org/internship-award/.

In this unpredictable and unfamiliar time of COVID-19, it is clear that remote work and research are dependent upon online collections. VRAF believes that there are many learning opportunities for interns to help provide scholarly and public access to collections by working remotely if needed in the 2020-2021 academic year.

Applications are due on July 24, 2020. The award recipient for 2020-2021 will be announced on August 17, 2020.
