2021 Summer Museum Internship
Duration: Ten (10) weeks beginning Tuesday June 1 and concluding Friday, August 13, 2021
The internship will provide a broad perspective on museum work, both collections preservation and public interpretation. Behind the scenes, the intern will work with the museum’s newly acquired American Foundation for the Blind Helen Keller Archive. Primary tasks will be rehousing and inventorying archival and photographic collections. The intern will be trained on the use of state-of-the-art digitization equipment and use it to digitize materials as assigned. In addition, the intern will provide guided tours of both the museum and production areas of the American Printing House for the Blind.
