The Center for Public History and Digital Humanities in the CSU History Department is pleased to announce an internship in Archival Processing and Digital Archives in partnership with the Cuyahoga County Archives. Paid positions ($15/hour), funded by a grant from the Cuyahoga County Board of Commissioners, are open for both summer and fall on a competitive basis to CSU students seeking a for-credit internship and enrolling for a total of at least 6 credit hours (including the internship course). It is subject to the standard CSU guidelines for internships.
These internships will include training in the use of Omeka, a tool developed by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University that archives collections and enables rich user-designed online exhibits. These are competitive positions and will be filled following a two-stage interview process. Applicants for these positions should email a current rÃ©sumÃ© and a letter of interest detailing what they hope to gain from an archival internship and any pertinent experiences that prepare them for the internship. The deadline for applying for the summer internship is Wednesday, April 15. A deadline for the fall internship has not been set, but interested students may apply at this time.
