Dear Colleagues,

I am happy to send to you an internship posting for summer 2014 at the United Nations Archives and Records Management Section in New York. We encourage any student involved in graduate work on the topics of archives, records management, information technology or a related subject to apply. We have several exciting projects this summer so will be selecting multiple interns, and would appreciate if you would pass this along to any interested students.

This opportunity is designed for an intern to work with experienced information professionals. Interns will be assigned to the archives or the records management unit based on individual backgrounds and preferences. Interns will work on a variety of projects centered on archival collections and records management activities. Depending on assignment, project tasks may include the following:

  • Processing and/or cataloguing archival collections and accessioning records
  • Assisting in the digitization of archival materials
  • Providing customer service for archives patrons and UN staff
  • Assisting in the ongoing creation and maintenance of digital and electronic content.

Interns will also collaborate with staff on social media (Facebook, Flickr, etc.) in the effort to promote archives/records management resources and services.
