Museum cataloging internBookmark This
Virginia Museum of Transportation
303 Norfolk Avenue SW
DescriptionThe Virginia Museum of Transportation is looking for a cataloging intern. The museum has never digitized their collections, and they haven't had the personnel to catalog, accession, etc. for many years before this past August. This is an unpaid internship, but the "from the ground up" experience will be valuable, and there is the possibility of other cross training in the museum. We all chip in where needed around here, so you could get a pretty well rounded museum experience. The ideal candidate would be studying towards or have completed course work in museums or historic preservation.
Responsibilities1. Photographing, data entry, tagging of historic resources
2. Writing label copy for artifacts on display
3. Occasional special event staffing
4. Organizing collections rooms
