Waterbury Center, VT 05677
802-241-8324jsikowitz@greenmountainclub.orgwww.greenmountainclub.orgThe Green Mountain Club (GMC) was founded in 1910 to establish, maintain, and protect Vermont’s 272-mile Long Trail – the United States’ first long-distance hiking trail, which runs the length of Vermont along the spine of the Green Mountains from Massachusetts to Canada. For 104 years, the Long Trail has been free, open, and available for hikers to experience Vermont from a unique perspective – along a primitive footpath atop the state’s central crest of mountains.

In its early years, the Green Mountain Club was primarily a small group of volunteers who cut the rugged Long Trail through Vermont’s mountain lands. Since then, the club has grown steadily – we now have a paid staff and an open membership of 10,000 members in Vermont and beyond. We depend upon over 1,000 volunteers working thousands of hours annually to manage and protect a trail system made up of over 500 miles of trails and 66 primitive shelters.

Throughout our 104 years, GMC staff and volunteers have dedicated themselves to documenting and promoting the unique Long Trail System. We are fortunate that many of the GMC’s early maps, papers, and photographs were preserved. There remain, however, many historic materials currently stored at our headquarters that are not cataloged or stored properly. These materials include historic photographs, oral history recordings, guidebooks and other publications, maps, club records, and more.

The intern that we are seeking will work as part of a Vermont Humanities Council grant that GMC has received in order to:

• Fully catalog and organize in-house historical materials

We have renovated it, installed a generator and Wi-Fi hotspots, have several iPads, a mobile computer lab, and tables and chairs.

We have taken it to a few events, but really need a strategic plan for the best way to use the van to fit the library's mission and goals. We'd like the student who takes on this project to develop a schedule for the van, create policies and a use manual for staff who volunteer to take the van to an event. We'd also like the student to develop a marketing plan for the van that targets the areas of Providence who are not currently served by a community library.

There is so much potential for using the van to promote library services, deliver services in target areas, and reach out to people who aren't current patrons but really need the resources the library can provide. What we need is the focus a clear plan of use can provide.
We'd like to find an energetic student who is excited at the prospect of creating a plan around this new library resource.

In the fall of 2014, I hope to work with a URI student who is interested in gaining experience with archival processing. The intern will physically arrange and rehouse material, organize papers into intellectual series and sub-series, create an EAD finding aid using Archivists' Toolkit, and catalog the collection for both WorldCat and the local Brown Library catalog.

Some collections also include outdated non-print media (glass slides, floppy disks, VHS tapes). For these, I would like assistance with researching current best practices for handling such material and help with devising a processing plan.
Requirements: attention to detail; strong written and oral communication skills; the ability to work independently (but also to seek guidance when necessary).

Recommended: experience with archival material and finding aids; an interest in women's history and/or women's studies.

The Christine Dunlap Farnham Archives, established in 1986, documents the experiences of women at Brown and throughout Rhode Island. The Feminist Theory Archives, launched in 2003, collects and preserves the papers of prominent feminist theorists working from the 1960s through the present. We welcome interns to work alongside the Pembroke Center Archivist on one of these two projects:

1. Alumnae Oral History Project
These oral history interviews comprise an important part of the Christine Dunlap Farnham Archives. Over 200 interviews of Brown alumnae have been recorded since the 1980s, and the Pembroke Center continues to work to digitize older recordings and to collect new interviews. An intern would work on one or more of the following:
- preparing interviews for the publication on the Brown Women Speak website: http://www.brown.edu/initiatives/women-speak - possible tasks: digitizing audio, transcribing, composing abstracts and biographies, creating MODS records
- generating an online finding aid for interviews on cassette and CD using the Archivists' Toolkit

2. Feminist Theory Archives
We have recently received several manuscript collections that await processing. These collections differ in their size and complexity, but typical tasks include:
- physical sorting and re-housing material
- determining the series arrangement
- composing a finding aid with scope/contents, biographical, and arrangement notes using the Archivists' Toolkit
- publishing the finding aid on the RIAMCO database
- creating a MARC record for the collection
It would be helpful, though not absolutely necessary, for the intern to have some experience processing archival collections and an interest in the history of women in higher education.fall 2013, spring 2014, summer 2014

11/5/2014 15:41:24Patricia B.M. BrennanHead of Reference / Coordinator of Library InstructionJames P. Adams Library / Rhode Island College600 Mount Pleasant Avenue, Providence, RI 02908401-456-2810pbrennan@ric.eduwww.ric.edu/adamslibraryGENERAL PRINCIPLES:
Work with each member of the Reference Department to gain insight into our public service philosophy and the differing patron interaction styles we use to put that philosophy into practice.

Develop a working knowledge of the general parts and major individual resources that make up our physical and virtual reference collections.

Gain insight into and practical experience with our approach to library instruction and information literacy, including our pedagogical models and our collaborative work with classroom faculty.

Increase depth of knowledge through interaction with library faculty in areas of specialization beyond reference and research support, including collection development and government publications.

DETAILS:
Early in this experience, we would expect a PFE student to work directly on the Reference Desk and in the Research Support office with each member of the department to enable that person to observe our differing styles and to learn our collections. After a period of observation and training, we would aim for the ability to work independently at the public desk with ourselves acting as backup and expert resources when needed. Reference Desk work also entails overseeing the public service work of our 8-10 student assistants and has the potential to include working with them on projects.

As we receive library instruction requests for the semester, we will give the PFE student the opportunity to observe how we prepare for our library instruction sessions, to learn how we apply concepts of information competence/research fluency, and to observe our individual teaching styles. Depending on the number of classes requested and their level of sophistication in the curriculum, we would aim for two or more teaching opportunities that would allow the PFE student to work with us to prepare a class “from soup to nuts” and then teach that class themselves with library faculty acting as observers. This would include creating or editing and updating teaching materials such as LibGuides, tutorial and/or Open Educational Resource materials, and other presentation documents.

Additional areas of departmental responsibility in which a PFE student might participate include:
-a major library-wide collection development/weeding project
-an assessment/deselection project within our Government Documents collection
-exhibit preparation

We will schedule time for the PFE student to meet with other members of the library faculty in areas in which that person has expressed interest so that insight can be gained into how those faculty view their specialty and how they organize the work of those areas. In addition, we will offer the PFE student the opportunity to attend/observe library or campus service and governance meetings as well as professional meetings of local library organizations.
-Completion of the Reference and Information Services course
-Strong public service skills, including tenacity in information problem-solving
-Interest in the teaching role of academic librarians
-Interest in gaining experience within a highly-diverse, urban college community

SUMMARY:
The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Pacific Islands Refuges and Monuments Office in Honolulu, Hawaii, is looking for a Records Management Facilitator intern to assist with organizing our holdings. Our office has extensive historical files, spanning decades, which document the management, political history, and scientific research surrounding 22 national wildlife refuges and 4 marine national monuments throughout the Pacific. This collection consists of both analog and digital records, with formats not limited to paper, photographs, motion picture film, disks, CD-ROMs, audio tapes, and electronic databases.

We are looking for a motivated, resourceful, and conscientious information professional to become our in-house expert on all things information and to organize, synthesize, digitize, inventory, distribute, and dispose of our files accordingly. You will gain hands-on experience with electronic records, preservation, digitization, metadata, records management, content management systems, and other disciplines. As manager of this project, you will also gain experience prioritizing tasks, collaborating and coordinating with other staff, establishing guidelines and best practices, networking with other information professionals for support and information sharing, and training others on policies and procedures.

Although this is a team-driven working environment, your daily work will be self-supervised and self-initiated. We will count on you to guide us by making policy recommendations, workflow decisions, and strategies for future records practices.

The Records Management Facilitator will make a difference for some of the world’s most remarkable natural resources, as well as gain awareness of wildlife refuge management, island and marine ecosystems, and many endangered and unique plant and animal species. As scheduling allows, there are extracurricular opportunities available, including possible field trips to remote worksites and participation in other office functions and events.



SCHEDULE:
A 6-month, full-time (40 hours per week) schedule is preferable. However, the schedule is flexible and is negotiable depending on the needs of the office and intern.


COMPENSATION:
The internship is unpaid, but we can offer a $43/workday stipend to cover living expenses and the use of public transportation (city bus). This stipend is offered to non-Oahu residents.

TRAVEL AND LODGING:
The Service will provide roundtrip airfare to and from Honolulu, including reimbursement for luggage and transportation from the airport, if necessary. Housing will be provided free of charge at a communal agency bunkhouse, which accommodates up to seven people.

SURROUNDINGS:
Our office is located in downtown Honolulu and the agency bunkhouse is located a short walk from the Waikiki neighborhood of Honolulu. Both locations are along popular bus routes. Bunkhouse residents enjoy the convenience of nearby grocery stores, drugstores, coffee shops, and a nearby library within walking distance.

Weekends, holidays, and off hours can be spent exploring Honolulu or other towns on Oahu. Opportunities abound to kayak, surf, fish, stand-up paddleboard, swim, and snorkel and enjoy the many beaches, parks, hiking trails, historical landmarks, and gardens on the island. Honolulu offers numerous restaurants, museums, stores, and cultural activities to choose from.

BACKGROUND:
The mission of the US Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. The National Wildlife Refuge System, managed by the Service, is the world’s premier system of public lands and waters set aside to conserve America’s fish, wildlife, and plants.

The Hawaiian and Pacific Islands Refuges and Monuments Office, headquartered in Honolulu, HI, provides administrative guidance and oversight for one-third of the acreage of the Refuge System in its 22 National Wildlife Refuges and 4 Marine National Monuments. Some of these refuges were set aside primarily to benefit endangered water birds, while others provide habitat for rare and unique forest bird species and migratory seabirds, as well as threatened and endangered plants. Others protect marine habitats including coral reefs, deep-sea habitats, chemosynthetic communities, and the world’s only protected submerged trench.

APPLICATION PROCESS:
To apply, send an attached resume and brief cover letter to Samantha Sumulong at Samantha_Sumulong@fws.gov.
