Syracuse, NY

Job Description:

This is an arrangement and description project. The intern will gain experience in the organization and description of archival materials by carrying out these activities with six (6) boxes of paper items which comprise the archives of the Academic and Special Libraries section (ASLS) of the New York Library Association (NYLA). The final output of this project will be the creation of a DACS-compliant finding aid which may be encoded into EAD as time permits. The intern’s work will be overseen by CLRC Executive Director and former ASLS President Deborah Emerson, with technical guidance from CLRC Assistant Director and Regional Archivist Deirdre Joyce.

The project will include creation and approval of a processing plan, the physical processing of the papers and rehousing into appropriate containers, and a completed finding aid. After the materials have been organized and the description is complete, the boxed items will be turned over to the New York State Library for permanent storage. The finding aid will make it possible for interested parties to locate needed items in the ASLS archives.

The activities for this project will take place on site at the CLRC office.

The ideal candidate for this internship will be someone with an interest in the arrangement and description of archival materials.
