As a result of unfortunate circumstances we've lost our summer intern and are seeking a post graduate level student or recent graduate to work with our team in the Photographic Collection of the University of St Andrews library.
This placement would begin in mid-July and last for 6-8 weeks. Candidates must have training or keen interest in working directly with photographic materials, and have in-depth knowledge of photographic history. The work would consist of preventive conservation, rehousing historic photographic material, participating in a negative freezing programme, conducting historic research for attribution and dating, as well as creating indices and finding aids for photographic collections. It will be a well rounded experience.
Those interested in finding out more, please feel free to contact me directly.
