Collections Management Internship, Historic New England, York Harbor, ME

27 Feb 2012 9:36 AM | Anonymous member (Administrator)
Historic New England, the country's oldest and largest regional heritage organization, seeks an intern to work on a collections management project for the Sayward-Wheeler House in York Harbor, Maine. This internship is a great opportunity for a student interested in collections management to gain hands-on experience. Using existing object information cards and online catalog records, the intern will create object reference binders for rooms in the Sayward-Wheeler House. This project will entail photocopying existing object cards, checking records for accuracy of information and location and, if time allows, conducting research to fill in informational gaps and taking digital images of objects. Graduate or undergraduate students in museum studies, American studies or art history are encouraged to apply. Applicants must be detail-oriented, self-directed, and able to work independently after initial training. They must be able to direct volunteers who may assist with the project. Microsoft Office skills are required. The intern will work primarily at the Sarah Orne Jewett House in South Berwick with site visits to the Sayward-Wheeler House in York Harbor and the organization's collections facility in Haverhill, Massachusetts. A minimum commitment of 8 hours per week is required. The project may be expanded based on the intern's interest and abilities and may be offered again or expanded into the summer. This internship is unpaid but may be completed for course credit. Please contact Jennifer Pustz, Museum Historian, jpustz@historicnewengland.org for an application.
