The Archives Intern will work with staff at the Chicago Metro History Education Center (CMHEC) to review and organize approximately 60 feet of archival records from the 35 year history of the Chicago Metro History Fair.
The primary tasks of this internship are to a) prepare CMHEC’s files and records for deposit in the collections of the Newberry Library and b) help CMHEC mount its annual exhibition of student History Fair projects. This internship is time-sensitive and work can begin immediately and continue through the summer (or until the hours are completed). Additional activities may include: scanning images and documents; sharing images and documents through CMHEC’s social media and email marketing services; and creating a historical student and teacher story file; among others. More than one intern may participate in this project.
Interested students should contact Frank Valadez (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a resume and brief cover letter/email explaining their interest in this project.
