Digital Scholarship Summer Internships

Not sure what digital scholarship is, but intrigued by the term? Want to learn about methods for digital scholarship and develop hands-on skills? Interested in developing a digital exhibition, geographical interface to historical information, data visualization, or textual analysis? 

Apply for a Frost Library Digital Scholarship Summer Internship! We welcome a range of applicants – no prior technical or digital scholarship experience necessary, just curiosity and commitment. This internship is a site for exploration of diverse interests and backgrounds in a digital space, and we encourage and welcome applications from all majors and academic backgrounds.

Interns will have the opportunity to work with a small group of peers, librarians, archivists, and IT specialists to develop skills such as:

  • Assessing and choosing digital scholarship methods and approaches
  • Digitization, curation, information visualization, project management, and other specific areas of digital scholarship
  • Evaluating tools for digital scholarship
  • Collaboratively designing and developing a digital scholarship project built around one of the Library’s digital archival collections

Term: June 11 – August 7, 2015 (dates flexible)

Number of Hours: 35 hours/week

Hourly Wage: $10 (approximately $3,000 total for the full program), campus housing subsidy provided

How to Apply: Email résumé, a letter of interest that discusses what skills you bring to the internship and what you would hope to get out of it, and contact information for a faculty reference. (Open to current Amherst College students only.)
