CMHEC Archives Internship

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 the internship are to a) identify interesting images and documents for use in CMHEC promotional purposes and b) prepare CMHEC’s files and records for deposit in the collections of the Newberry Library. This internship is can begin immediately and continue through the holiday break and into the spring semester (or until the hours are completed). Additional activities may include: scanning images and documents; supporting the development of promotional materials; 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 CMHEC by email (historyfair@chicagohistoryfair.org) with a resume and brief cover letter/email explaining their interest in this project.
