The Research Library of the Federal Reserve Board is offering a paid summer internship for graduate level library or information science students. We offer a full array of desktop and customized library services to staff members at the Board and assist in data intensive and web-dependent Board Research.
The Research Library intern will help improve library services to the Board research and professional community. The intern will work on several of the following projects that represent a variety of the library's responsibilities:
* Data Inventory Catalog Record Enrichment
Assist with the curation and cataloging of data sets using international and local standards and practices. Enrich dataset records using subject analysis and normalization of inconsistent metadata. Assist with authority control and data cleanup of vendor records. Link research with data assets used in research, to display in data inventory. Process and analyze search logs for controlled subject vocabulary term enrichment.

Create researcher IDs (ORCID, etc.) for Board authors and connect those IDs to author publications.
* Preparing for Library Move
Perform collection management and other tasks in preparation for move.
Research and report out on several topics of interest to library strategy (precise topics TBD, but they will likely relate to issues in scholarly communications, research data, and library management).
Draft a presentation and outreach materials to promote data mapping resources; assist with review of general marketing materials.
This full-time (40 hours per week during working hours) internship is located in Washington, D.C., lasts 10-12 weeks, and begins in late May or early June.
