Sound and Moving Images Internship

The Missouri History Museum (MHM) is accepting applications from students interested in an unpaid internship within our Sound and Moving Images Department. This position will report directly to the Manager of Media Archives and Digital Assets.

The intern will work with the supervisor to take inventory of existing collections; use Mimsy, the collections database, to create item-level stub records; and label videocassettes with an internal identifier. The intern will also clean the cassettes with a specialized tape cleaner/analyzer and attach a record of the cassette’s condition to its case for future reference.

A minimum of 150 hours is required for the internship. The final schedule will be determined with the supervisor.

The ideal candidate will be a graduate or undergraduate majoring in library science, history, media studies, or a similar field.
