Glenstone, a museum of modern and contemporary art located 15 miles outside of Washington, DC, is seeking applications for a Library Collections Intern position. As the “museum,” which includes acres of wild and landscaped art installations, prepares to expand the formal facilities, this would be a great opportunity to participate in a growing library collection with vision in spades.

Position Description:

Working under the supervision of the museum Librarian, the Library Collections Intern will be responsible for standardizing legacy library records in the museum’s collections management system, CollectiveAccess, and contribute to collection development. The projects will facilitate improved organization through the identification of items in the collection, as Glenstone prepares to transition the collection into the new library space in the future. Additional projects proposed by the intern are encouraged.

This is a part-time, temporary position of up to 30 hours per week, during regular business hours. There is flexibility in determining the intern’s weekly schedule. The rate of pay is $15.00 per hour stipend and/or academic credit in line with graduate school requirements.

Application Process:
For more information on the position and the application process, please see the Glenstone Jobs Portal.
