University Archives Offers Paid Internship Working with XML and Databases

University Archives and Library Special Collections is looking for a skilled intern to help us manage the way we access our digital holdings. We are looking for someone who is adept at tailoring style sheets and at encoding in XML.

Our finding aids are all in an XML subset called EAD (encoded archival description) and we are working on a step by step manual for encoding. We use a program called Notetab to input the data to XML and then render into HTML for viewing. This person would also help consolidate and refine databases and, in some instances, migrate them.

An intern dedicated to helping us create a manual and scheduling guide to develop good migrating and back up habits would also be of tremendous value. There would be opportunities for hire post internship as well.

The pay rate is $16/ hr.
