Job Description (if URL to posting not available). Please include instructions for how to apply.: The Langley School seeks an undergraduate or graduate student in a MILS program to serve as a summer or fall intern. This individual will participate in preservation and assessment of Langley’s collection, which includes photos, administrative documents, school-related ephemera, and a few 3-D objects (approximately 20 boxes of materials). Langley was founded in 1942 and has just constructed a new library on its campus, which will house the archives and is scheduled to open in September 2022. As Langley approaches its 80 th Anniversary, the organization, care, and dissemination of its collection is a high priority. The Archive Intern will be a member of the Langley Development Team and reports to the Head of Development. This is a paid part-time four-week internship (20-hrs per week at $12 per hour). There is flexibility in the schedule and we will work together to determine an arrangement of hours/days to be worked. The ideal candidate is someone who can work independently to assess the collection and then develop and execute a processing plan according to professional archival standards and best practices, including rehousing and preservation needs. There is not an archivist on staff, so someone who is confident to make decisions independently is critical. Interested candidates may submit a cover letter and resume to: Peggy Evans, Director of Annual Fund and Alumni Relations The Langley School 1411 Balls Hill Road McLean, VA 22101 Or via email: pevans@langleyschool.org . Please write “archive intern” in the subject line. No phone calls, please. THE MISSION OF THE SCHOOL ARCHIVES is to collect, conserve, display, interpret, and share the history of Langley for future generations.
