Created: February 12, 2013
Library of Congress Washington, D.C.0 other recent jobs
DescriptionThe Congressional Research Service (CRS) is accepting applications for volunteer internship opportunities in its Knowledge Services Group and Communications Office to work on the CRS Centennial Project during Spring-Summer 2013. There is no application deadline: applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis.
CRS works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing confidential and non-partisan policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS has been a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill for nearly a century.
Volunteers are needed to develop a photographic database for the CRS Centennial (1914- 2014) using materials from the Congressional Research Service, Prints and Photographs Division, Manuscript Division and other collections from the Library of Congress.
Volunteers will compile, organize, scan, and catalog images from these various collections. CRS is looking for highly skilled students studying library and information science, American history and U.S. politics, computer programming, archives, digital photography, etc. for a project beginning March 2013 through the end of August 2013.
Although most volunteer interns are graduate or law students, undergraduate students with exceptional academic talent are also welcome to apply. This is a great opportunity for highly motivated individuals to earn credit hours working on this digital project that will be a part of the Library’s permanent collection.
Volunteer interns must be US Citizens, and should be available at least three days a week,
Monday through Friday, for a three month period. Resumes and cover letters should be sent to Rosafelina (Nina) Anzures at firstname.lastname@example.org.
