The assignment involves becoming familiar with the collections management software, Re:discovery Proficio; learning about collections management and curation procedures; and ultimately cataloging a collection of approximately 100 artifacts. Additionally, the intern will attend meetings in the Collections and Education sections, learn about proper artifact handling, and assist with preparing objects for presentation to the Acquisitions Committee for acquisition or deaccession.

Work schedule: Weekly schedule is negotiable; however, the intern must be able to volunteer a minimum of 100 hours during the course of the internship and should be able to work shifts of at least four hours. Some after-hours and weekend work may be required.

Wage: This is a volunteer internship opportunity.

Qualifications: Candidates from all backgrounds with a demonstrated interest in history, public history, museum work, education, and/or publicity/marketing are encouraged to apply. Accuracy and strong attention to detail are required. Experience with digital photography and some knowledge of material culture is a plus.
