Project Archivist
Columbia University
New York City

The Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Columbia University seeks a Project
Archivist to process two archival collections?the records of the Ford
Foundation International Fellowships Program and the Lawrence A. Cremin
Papers.

  
The Ford Foundation International Fellowships Program was designed to promote
social justice, community development, and access to education through
providing advanced study opportunities to more than 4,300 social justice
leaders from the world's most vulnerable populations. The program, which ran
from 2001 through 2013, was the largest single project to be funded by the
Ford Foundation since its inception in 1936. The records of the program
include fellow files, administrative records of the Foundation's New York
Secretariat, and records generated by 22 international partner offices in the
administration of the program. The processing of the Ford IFP archive began in
June 2015 and the incumbent will oversee the completion of that project.

  
The Project Archivist will also be responsible for processing the papers of
the noted educator Lawrence A. Cremin (1925-1990), who held the post of
Frederick A.P. Barnard Professor of Education at Teacher's College, Columbia
University, and also served on the faculty of Columbia's Department of
History. He was the author of a dozen books, including The Transformation of
the School: Progressivism in the American School, which won the 1962 Bancroft
Prize in American History, and American Education: The National Experience,
1783-1876, which won a Pulitzer Prize in 1981. He served as the President of
Teacher's College from 1974 to 1984.

  
Reporting to the Head of Collections Management, the Project Archivist will be
responsible for completing the arrangement and description of the two
collections, identification and referral of items for conservation treatment
as necessary, and the preparation of EAD-encoded finding aids and other
descriptive access tools. The incumbent will also work closely with the
Digital Assets Archivist on the appraisal, arrangement, and description of
born digital material. Responsibilities also include recruiting students and
coordinating their activities with the collection such as assigning tasks,
maintaining schedules, and monitoring the overall pace and direction of work;
submitting regular progress reports on processing statistics; providing
reference services for collections processed; and performing other duties as
assigned.

  
This temporary appointment is for 20 months from the date of hire with
possibility of extension.

the City of New York provides outstanding opportunities to work and grow in a
