UCLA Library and Archival Conservation Summer Internship
The UCLA Library Preservation Department is offering a pre-program internship for qualified students who are preparing to apply for Masters-level conservation programs. (Those currently in conservation programs may also be considered). This internship will provide experience in conservation decision making, treatment, documentation, and enclosures for library and archival collections. The conservation intern will work under the supervision of the head of the lab to stabilize library and archive materials for research use, exhibit, and digitization. Treatments will depend on prior experience. Relevant literature will be reviewed prior to conservation treatment, and all projects will be documented. Interns will have a chance to blog on their work, and make a historic binding model for their portfolio. Application deadline is April 17, 2015
These internships are 75% FTE (30 hours/week) for an eight week period, with a flexible start date from July 1 to September 16 and an hourly salary rate of $15.19 per hour.
