The [Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum]('s
Library and Archives offers opportunities for intern experiences to graduate
students preparing for careers in libraries and archives. Interns must
schedule their work Monday through Friday during regular business hours.
Interns work under the supervision and guidance of one of the Rock Hall's
librarians and archivists, depending on the nature of the practicum.

Internships are offered in the following areas:

*Archival Arrangement, Preservation, and Description*  
This internship provides the opportunity for a SLIS student to participate in
archival processing and preservation work, such as inventorying, arranging and
describing archival collections, entering data into an archival management
system, helping to create an institutional disaster plan, and performing basic
preservation work on document-based collections.

*Cataloging and Metadata*  
This internship provides the opportunity for a SLIS student to work on
projects to create and enhance bibliographic records in a library catalog
and/or create metadata for digital collections. Such work may entail assigning
subject and name access points, preparing descriptive summaries, and reviewing
catalog records for accuracy.

*Collection Development*  
This internship provides an opportunity for a SLIS student to participate in
collection development activities in a music research library. Such work
includes evaluating current materials and making recommendations for future
additions to the collection. The student will gain an understanding of library
users' needs, the constraints of physical space, various resources and tools
used in collection development, and the budgetary considerations required of
such decisions.

*Digital Projects*  
This internship provides the opportunity for a SLIS student to work in support
of digitization initiatives to increase access to collections through
digitization and website access. Possible assignments include scanning,
entering and editing metadata in a digital asset management system, preparing
technical and administrative documentation, testing digitization workflows,
and assisting with interface design, usability studies, and related web
development activities.

This internship provides the opportunity for a SLIS student to support the
archivists and librarians on staff in response to research requests. Such work
may include searching the online catalog, research databases, print reference
sources, and archival collections for researchers at a distance, as well as
staffing the Information Desk or Archives Reading Room to assist researchers
in person.

*How to Apply*  
Interested individuals may send a cover letter and resume (including full
contact information and e-mail address), a personal statement or one-page
document describing what they hope to bring to the internship and gain from
the experience, and a letter of recommendation from a professor (may be
