401-863-6268pembroke_archives@brown.eduhttp://www.brown.edu/research/pembroke-center/archivesThe Pembroke Center for Teaching and Research on Women is a feminist institute at Brown University that collaborates with the Brown University Library on several archival projects. 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

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. This student should have a solid understanding of technology; be able to use social media to promote library services, and be comfortable with writing policy (or looking forward to the prospect of learning how to write policy.)Fall 2013 and/or Spring 2014

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
• Update storage and research facilities for in-house archives to include improved security, indexes and finding aids, and proper storage
• Develop formal processes for the intake and management of future donated/acquired materials
• Lay the groundwork for the development of a searchable electronic database of archived materials
• Transfer particularly sensitive archival items to the Vermont Historical Society’s GMC holdings
• Create a new historic display for our Visitor Center
• Digitize selected historical materials to be accessed online through our website

The intern will be supervised by Joe Sikowitz, MLS, GMC Membership and Volunteer Coordinator.

Stipend & Living Arrangements:
GMC is offering $1,500 for interning during June and July 2014. The work hours will be comprised of eight hours each day for the two month period with weekends off. The intern will work at GMC Headquarters, 4711 Waterbury-Stowe Road, Waterbury Center, Vermont 05677, nestled in the beautiful Green Mountains. The intern is responsible for housing but alternative options are available depending on the candidate.

To Apply:
Submit a cover letter, resume, and a list of two references to Joe Sikowitz, jsikowitz@greenmountainclub.org by April 1, 2014.
We are looking for a candidate with an MLS or who is currently pursuing a MLS. A candidate who has a concentration in archival studies or has some knowledge of archival work is preferred. Other qualifications include:

• Knowledge of cataloging techniques and current standards
• Knowledge of archival techniques and current standards
• Excellent organizational skills with particular attention to detail
• Excellent computer skills including knowledge of the MS Office Suite
• Ability to work independently while collaborating with a diverse group of people
• A passion for historic materials and historic preservation
• Interest in the natural environment and/or hiking
• Ability to think critically with keen decision-making skills
• Creative problem solving skills
• Ability to ask for help and to accept supervision and evaluation of your work
• Dependable and hard working
• Ability to work in Northern Vermont for the months of June and July 2014

PFEs will work in the Digital Initiatives office at Rhode Island College gaining professional field experience from May to August, 2014. PFEs will accomplish the objective of learning about the organization of recorded knowledge and information (Outcome 3: Knowledge Organization) by actively participating in the digitization activities of the Digital Initiatives department, helping to record cataloging metadata while scanning material for the AS220 Digital Archives Project. By actively engaging in and providing essential logistical support PFEs will help to make archival objects available to the public. This meets the Outcome 1: Professional Ethics of the PFE. PFEs will also help to digitize this archival material and make it accessible to the general public. In all of these endeavors PFEs will be advised of the appropriate ethical considerations to undertake as a librarian so that they can properly attribute rights legally. Regarding Outcome 2: Resource Management, a good deal of the work PFEs will be engaged in focuses on digitizing delicate print materials. PFEs will learn about best practices when digitizing print materials that are themselves objects for preservation. In the digitization of image slides for the AS220 Digital Archives Project, PFEs will take an active advisory role in making determinations relating to cataloging metadata and the digitization process. They will investigate, devise, and document a workflow using Adobe Bridge to add metadata to image files. This process, alongside their work with Adobe Acrobat Pro, FileMaker Pro, VueScan, and Basecamp will provide them with the experience to meet criteria for Outcome 4: Technological Knowledge and Skills related to digital archiving. Throughout their time as a PFE, MLIS candidates will be actively engaged in researching and creating metadata for AS220 archival content, accomplishing Outcome 6: Research.


Many PFEs have already been a great asset to the Adams Library's Digital Initiatives Department. Our goals for them should make our PFEs sought-after candidates for employment in the digital world.
