Vermont Folklife Center Archive Internship

The Vermont Folklife Center (VFC) Archive seeks an audio preservation and metadata intern for summer 2013.

The intern will work with the VFC Archivist to accession and process physical audiocassettes, digitize recordings, and document the recordings using Archivist Toolkit. In addition intern might be asked to process, scan and document a body of photographs from a related collection of materials. The internship will afford a graduate student the opportunity to work with one of New England’s premiere audio archives, and gain experience with audio preservation best practices as they are employed in a small, institutional collection.

Requirements: Intern should be enrolled in an MLS or MLIS program and must be able to receive academic credit for internship. Ideal candidate will have experience with, or interest in, audio preservation and a background in folklore, ethnomusicology or music librarianship. Familiarity with audio editing software, Archivist’s Toolkit and Omeka. Knowledge of French is a plus.
