GAHSP is seeking an intern to work on a specific component of the digital archive project

October 15, 2020 in General

GAHSP is seeking an intern to work on a specific component of the digital archive project. The digital archive includes artifacts of local Greek American historical significance, which are physically housed at the GAHSP Heritage Center facility located at the St. George Greek Orthodox Cathedral at 256 S 8th St, Philadelphia, PA 19107.

The intern will be supervised by GAHSP members and volunteers, including board members, current managers of the archive, and a professional librarian. The intern will have the opportunity to review the existing organization of how digital files have been filed, named, and cataloged. Cataloging needs to be upgraded to include searchable metadata in the master database. The intern should have the proper background to allow them to assess the digital files for missing information (e.g., date) and to research to provide an estimate on the missing information as needed. All of the files are already digitized, and the goal is to make them broadly available to the public on the web. The intern should have familiarity with CMS systems to be able to recommend future options for the archive.

Applicants should have at least a bachelor’s or currently be pursuing a more advanced degree in archival studies, library and information science, museum studies. Fluency in Greek is helpful but not necessary. Ideal candidates will have experience with photography, scanning, and postproduction using Adobe Photoshop and have the ability to work in an office environment managing physical and digital filing systems. A stipend will be offered.

Please send your resume to Alexandra Kroger at the following e-mail address: akougent@gmail.com.
