What we do
I’m an archivist, which is an individual responsible for appraising, acquiring, arranging, describing, preserving, and providing access to records of enduring value, according to the principles of provenance, original order, and collective control to protect the materials' authenticity and context.
What we look for in an intern
The Archives Center hosts undergraduate interns who are interested in exploring the archival profession and graduate students who are pursuing course work for a degree in library, archives, and information science or public history and museum studies. Interns gain hands-on skills with digitization, custom housing, handling practices for photographs and audio visual materials, cataloging (MARC format), learning how an archives is managed, writing, and communicating.
