The Hagley Museum and Library’s Manuscripts and Archives Department (M&A) seeks an intern for summer or fall to assist with the processing of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) records. NAM is the largest manufacturing trade association in the United States and its records are essential for understanding the relationship between business and government in the twentieth century. Once completed, this project will add an additional 880 linear feet of manuscript, audiovisual, and published materials to Hagley’s already extensive NAM collections.
The successful candidate will enter data into Excel spreadsheets, perform minor conservation work, handle and describe manuscript material, and assist the project archivist with other duties as assigned.
Qualified applicants should have an undergraduate degree in History or relevant field, or be pursuing a graduate degree in History or Library Science, familiarity with Microsoft Excel, strong attention to detail, and the ability to work independently. Preference will be given to candidates with prior experience working or training in an archival environment.
This internship in the library at Hagley entails 320 hours of service, with start and end dates set by mutual agreement. The rate is $15 per hour. Applications will be reviewed starting April 1, 2019, until the internship is filled. Hagley Museum and Library is an equal opportunity and affirmative action employer. Women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans are strongly encouraged to apply.
