Hagley Library Processing Internship

This internship will focus on the paper portion of the Cinecraft Productions archive that includes project scripts, business records, photographic prints and negatives. The Processing Intern will be responsible for the conservation, arrangement, and description of the collection under the supervision of the Audiovisual and Digital Archivist in the Audiovisual Collections and Digital Initiatives Department.

  • Review materials condition for possible preservation attention
  • Re-boxing, re-foldering and labeling archival materials
  • Arrange and describe materials using a recently completed preliminary inventory 
  • Author EAD and DACS compliant findings aid(s) using ArchivesSpace

For more information about the Cinecraft Productions archive, see this recent article from our Research & Collections Newsletter: https://www.hagley.org/librarynews/first-look-new-cinecraft-productions-collection


The intern should have experience, or at the very least training, in processing archival collections. Sensitivity to and experience with the handling of archival materials is required.


The internship is budgeted for 310 hours of service at $15 per hour.  This can be a full-time or part-time position, but the full allotment of hours must be used over a four month period from the starting date. Applications will be reviewed during the period of the COVID-19 mandatory shutdown and interviews conducted via Zoom after April 8. The successful candidate will start the project after Hagley’s resumption of normal operations.
