The Theodore Roosevelt Center at Dickinson State University is seeking interns to participate in the cataloging of historical documents in the Theodore Roosevelt Digital Library. The goal of the Center is to serve scholars, tourists, teachers, curious citizens, and students of all ages as they explore the life and achievement of the 26th President of the United States. Launched to the public in late 2011, the Theodore Roosevelt Digital Library is the primary portal the Center uses to convey that goal to a national audience. More than 35,000 items from 18 different collections are already available at www.theodorerooseveltcenter.org. The Center has over 150,000 digitized documents from the Theodore Roosevelt Papers at the Library of Congress, including letters to and from Roosevelt, newspaper clippings, speeches and executive orders, photographs, maps, and personal diaries. Around 10,000 items have been digitized from other collections, such as the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress, sites within the National Park system, and Harvard College Library. In order to make the digital files available to the public online, the Center is seeking interns to help with creation and review of metadata for these documents in our online database. Interns will work a minimum of 240 hours (approximately six weeks), participating in all facets of the development of the digital library. These will include cataloging (viewing documents on a computer screen and typing and reviewing information in a Web-based form), reviewing the work of other catalogers to make sure all standards are being met, and copyright review of collections in order to clear them for publication.
Since the work is web-based, the internships will be conducted remotely. Interns do not need to relocate to Dickinson, North Dakota, to complete their work. Training will be provided through an online classroom environment throughout the internship. A moderate hourly stipend will be provided. Internships are to be completed between May 15 and August 31, 2016.
