Web Archiving Interns
New York Art Resources Consortium
New York City

We are looking for interns to help us develop our Mellon-funded web archiving
program. This paid internship is a great opportunity.
Details follow....

Part-Time (10 hours/week during winter academic semester)

At completion of the semester-long internship, a stipend of $1,500 will be

The New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC), consisting of the libraries of
The Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, and The Frick Collection, seeks
three students in graduate programs in information science, art history, or
related disciplines to become interns in a grant-funded
program that will collect, capture, describe, and archive web content of
resources for the study of art. The program is funded with a grant from the
Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and will be administered by and based at The Frick
Collection. Building on a previous study that examined the organizational,
economic, and technological challenges posed by the rapidly increasing number
of web-based or "born-digital" resources that document art history and the art
market, the current program will implement the recommendations that emerged
from the study to acquire, preserve, and provide unified access to these
unique and often ephemeral materials.

  
Reporting to the Web Archiving Program Coordinator, each intern will be
assigned to a NYARC library to work on relevant web-based collections in five
areas of focus that correspond with analog collection strengths.
