Hi guys! Just wanted to pass this internship along to those of you who are students out there:
Subject: Internship, Cooperstown, New York
Technical Services Internship Opportunity
The National Baseball Hall of Fame invites graduate students in Library
and Information Science to apply for a Technical Services Internship.
Interns will have the opportunity to experience a technical services
environment outside of a traditional academic setting. Interns will
perform original and copy cataloging of baseball monographs,
dissertations, serials, and newsletters using OCLCs CatME and the local
Innovative Interfaces, Inc. system. Students may also be exposed to
acquisitions, serials management, bibliographic and authority control, and reference.
A basic cataloging class is recommended. The intern is expected to use
AACR2R, LCSH, LC Classification, and MARC21 formats.
To apply: Please submit a letter describing your interest in the
technical services profession, a resume, and the names, phone numbers
and addresses (including e-mail) of at least 3 professional references
to: Melissa Krok-Marietta, Assistant Manager of Educational Programs, 25
Main Street, Cooperstown, NY 13326.
Also, I get to do the coolest thing. I have volunteered to help the librarian of the Nashville Symphony Chorus mess around in their music library. I've been singing with the chorus and I jumped when John (our Librarian) said he needed help. We're moving into a new hall in 2 years so we're started to get things organized. It should be a really awesome experience!!
Have a good day kids!!
