Paid Summer 2023 Internship for Graduate Student
The Metropolitan Museum of Art Archives

The Metropolitan Museum of Art Archives collects, preserves, and makes accessible for research corporate records of the Museum, and promotes an informed and enduring understanding of its institutional history. Archives holdings date from 1870 to the 21st century, and document the Met’s art collection, past exhibitions, curatorial practice, and administration. The summer 2023 intern will collaborate with staff archivists to preserve analog and digital Museum records and provide reference assistance to Museum staff and non-staff scholars. A special focus of the 2023 internship will be preservation imaging of historical news clipping scrapbooks from the early 20th century. The ideal candidate will be enrolled in a graduate program in library/information science or archives management.

In addition to developing practical work skills through the Museum Archives departmental placement, the intern will participate in The Museum Seminar (MuSe) Internship Program and interact directly with the Museum’s diverse audience by conducting a gallery talk based on their area of expertise. MuSe interns train to lead their own public tours in the galleries and participate in a weekly seminar series on museum practice.

Compensation is $17 per hour, plus $1,500 toward housing/travel to New York City (less applicable taxes and deductions).

The Met strongly encourages applications to the MuSe program from students who are members of groups underrepresented in careers related to museums and the visual arts.
