With a generous gift from the Lennox Foundation, the Lennox Foundation Endowment for Preservation Education, Training and Outreach was established to fund graduate level internships in library and archives preservation administration and conservation, and to support the educational outreach activities of the Iowa State University (ISU) preservation staff. Each year, a twelve-week internship will be offered by the ISU Library Preservation Department to provide graduate students with practical experience and exposure to preservation in an academic library environment.
This internship is intended to give current graduate students and recent graduates of preservation and conservation programs the opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge of care and treatment of library and archives materials in an academic library. Interns will work in the ISU Library Preservation Department with guidance from the Head of Preservation and the Library Conservator.
The 2012 Lennox Foundation Internship provides a $3,200 stipend and university housing for 12 weeks. Applications must be received by Thursday, January 19, 2012.
