Possible internships for winter/spring 2012

Here is a sampling of different internships available for the winter/spring 2012 semester:

  • The Newberry Library has several internships available for the spring working with Genealogy and Local History, Public Programs, and Map cataloguing.  To apply go to the Internship page of the website or email internships@newberry.org. Application deadline: December 1st.
  • Edgewater Historical Society: Now I am coming back to you with another volunteer opportunity with us that some of your students might be interested in, and that is doing independent research on some aspect of Edgewater history.  We have a number of architects that designed buildings in Edgewater of which very little is known.  Researching them and their works and then writing an article on them that would be published in our newsletter and then on our website would be a helpful contribution to our knowledge of Edgewater history and would give some belated recognition to those who contributed so much to the built environment.  It would also be nice for your students to say that they have published even before graduation from Grad School.  Researching architects is relatively easy to do. We have done articles on several.  We have other such topics that would take longer such as "Drug Stores in Edgewater" and "Taverns in Edgewater."  I am in the process of researching grocery stories and writing an article for our newsletter on them.  It could be used as a template for such other but similar research.  There are many more topics.  We are also interested in assistance in researching individual buildings--who designed them and when.  Training would be provided.” Interested students should contact LeRoy Blommaert directly at 773-728-1498. Application deadline: open.
  • The Great Lakes Naval Museum, the official history program of the Department of the Navy, has internships available for the coming semester.  Download the Internship guidelines for more information.  Interest students should contact the Museum directly, glnm@navy.mil, 847-688-3154. Application deadline: open.
  • The Women and Leadership Archives at Loyola University has internships available for processing a collection, creating or adding a digital exhibition, or helping plan, design and brand an outreach campaign targeting Loyola faculty to turn them into advocates for the archives.  Interested students should contact Beth Myers directly at emyers@luc.edu. Application deadline: open.
