Mt Vernon, WI: Paid Intern, The Drikung Kagyu Dharma Circle

Archives intern with the Drikung Kagyu Dharma Circle

The Drikung Kagyu Dharma Circle (DKDC) is seeking a student with audiovisual archives experience to take the first steps in processing a collection of recordings that document the teachings of recently retired Khenchen Rinpoche.

There is a variety of formats in this collection, including cassette tapes, CDs, and DVDs. Some materials have already been digitized.

Duties will include:

  • Surveying the materials;
  • Preparing a condition report;
  • Making recommendations for preservation; and
  • [possibly] drafting processing plan.

This is a paid position at $15/hour

This position requires the ability to work independently to assess an unfamiliar archive. Jesse Henderson at UWDCC will be available for technical advice, and Debra Shapiro at the UW-Madison iSchool for logistics; however the intern will work primarily on their own.

Access to a vehicle is required. The materials are located in Mount Vernon WI (about 20 miles from Madison). DKDC will provide a gas card to cover some of the costs of commuting.

It is expected that the project will begin in January 2022

To apply, please contact Debra Shapiro, dsshapiro@wisc.edu
