Among the skills trainees develop are research and reference; electronic information resources; promotion and author outreach; resource development; archiving and metadata; records management; liaison.

The scheme is run  ‘for-credit’ and ‘not-for-credit’ allowing current MLS students to complement their studies with practical training and providing recent graduates with their first library related work experience.Architecture_media_politics_society (AMPS C.I.O.) is  a non-profit research organization. Its peer-reviewed, open access journal Architecture_MPS (ISSN 2050-9006) is published with UCL Press. It represents a first in scholarly publication in that it is run by both an academic and a librarian team.

Several positions are available in:
Job 1. Digital Archive/ Resource Repository/Outreach
You will be integral to collating an innovative resource repository of open access online information. Central to this will be outreach through online channels, principally social media (Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest).

Job 2. Reference/Research Support
You will be responsible for supporting the academic researchers engaged in AMPS publications and research programs and more generally supporting the needs of the organization.

Internship Opportunity

“When senior members of a community go into schools and talk about their lives and work, and children write songs with Larry Long about what they have learned, they create a remarkable celebration of humanity and hard work.”  —DR. TONY SEEGER, Smithsonian Folkways

Under the auspices of the nonprofit organization Community Celebration of Place, prominent singer/songwriter Larry Long has created a curriculum called Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song that has brought elders from across the country into classrooms to share their life stories with young people.  These oral histories—and songs the students wrote, inspired by the stories—are as varied as our citizens: everything from a childhood in a Japanese internment camp, to fleeing war in Somalia, to farm winters in harsh northern Minnesota, to becoming an Anishinabe Ojibwe language instructor, to being the first grandchild of slaves to attend college.

Over 1,000 life stories in narrative and song have been stored on Hard Drives, CDs, Digital Analogue Tapes (DAT) and written documents.  Much of the material is under immediate threat of deterioration.  During 2016, it is our goal to begin preserving this rich collection and finding a home for it in an archival facility that will make the material available to the public for use by researchers, historians, teachers, students and family members.
