Digital Oral History Archivist (DOHA) Internships – A PAID OPPORTUNITY

The 1947 Partition Archive is pleased to offer a unique internship opportunity to students of Rutgers University, in partnership with the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the National Endowment for Humanities.

The 6-month, part-time, Digital Oral History Archivist (DOHA) internship will introduce aspiring undergrad college students to contemporary digital archiving and collections care techniques via hands-on experiences and lectures from subject-matter experts. Interns will have the opportunity to organize, describe and preserve born-digital oral history interviews as they arrive in the digital archive.

The six-month paid internship will especially be beneficial for students exploring a future career in digital archiving, digital heritage preservation, or the library and information sciences fields in general. Students interested in gaining a deeper insight into South Asian histories will find additional benefits in this internship.

Students will attend a series of lectures delivered by experts in the field and gain hands-on experience in cloud-based cataloging, handling, and preservation of born-digital oral history collections. Students emerging from the program will have a solid practical basis from which to explore more advanced topics within the library and information science fields as well as the humanities in general.

This part-time internship can be accomplished both in-person at our Berkeley office or remotely. It will unfold alongside the students’ regular schoolwork.
