Through the National Institute for Newman Studies' generous support, the History Department is happy to offer a $2,000 paid archival internship. The Newman Institute, located in Oakland, facilitates scholarly learning and dialogue on the enduring relevance of John Henry Cardinal Newman’s life, work, and influence. The institute includes physical and digital libraries, a scholarly journal, and a residential research center.
Internships will be supervised by Daniel T. Michaels, Chief Technology Officer, who writes:
"The National Institute for Newman Studies Digital Collections contains over 250,000 images featuring letters, library records, photographs, maps, manuscripts, music scores, and more. The Digital Collections is an online platform that provides new ways of doing scholarship that involve collaborative, interoperable, transdisciplinary, and computationally engaged research and publishing. This internship exposes students to the breadth and depth of the digital publishing process: metadata entry, metadata standards, image manipulation, document upload, document annotation, transcriptions, optical character recognition, data visualization, and more. Technical aptitude (understanding of basic web technologies and spreadsheets) are preferred. Attention to detail is required. Laptop or workstation required. All work can be done remotely."
This prestigious internship opportunity is available to any public history student. Previous digital experience and/or archival experience is strongly preferred but not required.
This internship can be remote or in-person with some in-person preferred. In-person internship days are Wednesday and Thursday.
Please note that this internship may become remote at any point, depending on university policies related to COVID-19. The History Department will work with Dollar Bank to modify responsibilities.
