CONDITIONS OF EMPLOYMENT: Internship position will be 40
hours/week for 8 - 12 weeks during the summer of 2016.

ORGANIZATION: The Great Lakes Indian Fish & Wildlife
Commission (GLIFWC), formed in 1984, represents eleven Ojibwe tribes in
Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan who reserved hunting, fishing and gathering
rights in the 1837, 1842, and 1854 Treaties with the United States government.
GLIFWC provides natural resource management expertise, conservation
enforcement, legal and policy analysis, and public information services in
support of the exercise of treaty rights during well-regulated, off-
reservation seasons throughout the treaty ceded territories.

GLIFWC's Public Information Office has amassed an incredibly significant
collection of photographs since the organization's founding. Many of these
images need to be digitized to increase access to the images themselves and
their associated metadata, as well as to provide for long term preservation.

DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: The Digitization Project Intern's main goal will
be to digitize a portion of GLIFWC's Public Information Office photographic
collection. This will entail establishing a workflow for scanning slides,
negatives, and prints according to archival standards, creating basic
metadata, and performing quality control on digital images. There will also be
an associated project of the intern's choosing related to these efforts, such
as curate and develop an online exhibit using Omeka, research into the
contextual information of the materials and write an article, or develop an
oral history project associated with the photographs in the collection.
