Internships at UCLA

From today’s PADG mailing list:

The UCLA Library Preservation Department is offering two internships for the summer of 2011. Application deadline is April 29, 2011.

The visiting internship program offers capstone experiences to individuals enrolled in graduate preservation or conservation education and provides pre-program experiences to qualified students who are applying for Masters-level training in conservation.

Preservation Administration

The intern will work with the preservation officer to complete a project in one of the following areas: audit and assessment of the condition of a library collection, development of disaster response and business continuity plans, or review and quality control of a preservation process. The intern will work with staff and collections to collect data that guides preservation decisions and assists with project management. Typical projects include collection surveys, environmental monitoring, business continuity planning and review of materials for preservation contract services.

Conservation Treatment

This internship will provide experience to pre-program students for individuals planning to attend graduate level conservation programs. The internship will focus on conservation decision making, treatment and documentation for library and archival collections. The conservation intern will work under the supervision of the collections conservator to perform repair or make enclosures for materials selected from the collections. Relevant literature will be reviewed prior to conservation treatment and all projects will be documented.
