University of Kentucky Special Collections Research Center has announced the upcoming projects for this year’s Learning Lab internship. The Special Collections Learning Lab is a center of primary research, experiential learning, and training targeted to UK undergraduates in various disciplines who want to enhance their studies through training in archival methods and theory. Applications for fall and spring internships are due Sept. 19.
Interns with the Special Collections Learning Lab will be taught to arrange and describe rare or unique collections in their area of research interest, and enhance access to those collections through the broader academic community through creating guides, exhibits or transcriptions. Interns will also produce a final scholarly project, such as a poster, presentation or exhibit, reflecting on the impact the internship had on their research.
Interns will be expected to work five to 10 hours a week and will receive $8.80 per hour.
