Hot Jobs: The Field Book Project Internship

The Field Book Project

Want a paid internship at the Smithsonian?  I’d snap it up in a heartbeat. Best of all, they are accepting currently enrolled library or museum studies students, as well as those enrolled within the last six months.

The page says 2011 internships, but if you click in to the announcement it says 2012.

Go get it!

Hot Jobs: NYPL Copyright Clearance Analyst


The New York Public Library seeks an extremely organized, detail-oriented person to serve as the Library’s Rights Clearance Analyst.   The successful candidate will work closely with the Library’s permissions office, attorneys, curators, and collections strategy department to: (i) assist the Library in its efforts to make its myriad collections more broadly available to researchers and to the public at large via a Rights Management Database and (ii) develop and implement the Library’s guidelines regarding the use of materials in the Library’s collections.

I haven’t seen anything like this before – and it’s an aspect of digital libraries I hadn’t thought about.  The NYPL is looking for a candidate with a JD or an MLS.  This might be a good move for a law librarian looking to change it up a bit.

Yes mi Lion!

Amazing Jobs: Archivist at the New York City Ballet

Wouldn’t this be an amazing job?

Imagine working as an Archivist for the New York City Ballet, cataloging sweaty toe shoes.  They must have some fascinating materials; the website lists a bibliography, videography, discography, and mentions costumes.  They also have an online exhibition with tons of great pictures.
