It is considered one of the world’s most perfect museums and the residence is one of New York City’s few remaining Gilded Age mansions. The Frick welcomes nearly 300,000 visitors a year to its tranquil mansion on the Upper East Side, encouraging visitors to closely observe, reflect, and engage with its esteemed collection.

Our entire staff ensures that the resources of The Frick Collection are made accessible and inviting to “all persons whomsoever,” in accordance with the wishes of the museum’s founder.

Paid Internship Opportunity: Oral History Management, Archives of American Art, Washington, DC

The Archives of American Arts seeks one graduate student intern for fall 2016 to work within a small team and support efforts to make oral history transcripts and audio available on the Archives’ website.

In this paid Oral History Management internship you will be immersed in what goes into the management of a very robust, longstanding, ongoing oral history program. All of our legacy interviews have been fully digitized for preservation, and subsequently, access purposes. A major initiative is ingesting the audio files into our CIS and DAMS. All of our ongoing oral history interviews are recorded as digital audio files with outside interviewers. Most of our interviews are transcribed (especially current interviews) by a transcription company. There is an extensive review process of these documents before they are presented online–first in-house, by the narrator and interviewer. In addition to our ongoing initiatives, we have a backlog of bottlenecked interviews that are a high priority to be sent for review or to be posted on the Archives’ website.

The Archives’ Oral History Program began in 1958 and includes interviews with American artists, scholars, critics, collectors, dealers, supporters and others involved in American art. Today, our recordings make up the world’s largest collection of oral histories on the subject of American art, allowing scholars to learn about the art world directly from the words of our nation’s most distinguished artists.

OUTCOMES
You will come away with a greater understanding of the planning and management of an oral history program; skills in digital preservation and file management; and insight into an organization’s policies, procedures, and workflow.
