Unpaid Intership with Minnesota Historical Society

The Minnesota Historical society is offering an unpaid Manuscript Acquisitions Internship. 
It is 8-12 hours a week at the Minnesota History Center. 

Project summary: 
The collections department documents the history and culture of the state by building, preserving, and making available the collections of the Minnesota Historical Society. The intern will work independently and with staff to assist in the appraisal and arrangement of incoming manuscripts collections. This individual will be responsible for labeling folders and boxes with clarity and accuracy, preparing box/folder/volume spreadsheets, and researching and drafting biographical sketches and organizational histories as requested. At the culmination of the internship the intern will submit an optional blog post about a collection of papers and/or records that they worked on of their choosing to be published in Collections Up Close.
