For the fourth year in a row, the Smithsonian Institution is pleased to offer a funded summer internship in the Center’s Ralph Rinzler Folklife Archives and Collections, made possible through the generous support of Scott and Dorothy Odell. The internship is ideal for students focusing on library and information science or archival studies. The selected intern will work with archives staff to apply collections management best practices in arranging, describing, and digitizing collections, which consist of papers, photographs, audio recordings, and audiovisual media. The intern may also work with content in our Digital Asset Management System and contribute to finding aids that meet current archival descriptive standards and are Encoded Archival Description compatible using ArchivesSpace (ASpace). The intern will receive a $300 weekly stipend during the full-time, ten-week internship. The deadline to apply is March 15, 2019.

You will be required to upload supporting materials, including an essay, résumé, transcripts, and letters of recommendation. For questions about the internship, please email folklife@si.edu.

The submission deadline for summer internships is March 15. There are no deadlines for submitting applications for other seasons. The completed application is to be submitted at least six weeks before the start of the internship. If you have questions, please contact intern coordinator Arlene Reiniger at ReinigerA@si.edu.
