The North Carolina Museum of History, located in downtown Raleigh, provides internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students looking for experience in museums. An intern is needed to assist two curators with researching, documenting, and cataloging objects in the museum’s collection. The assignment involves becoming familiar with the collections management software, Re:discovery Proficio; learning about collections management and curation procedures; and ultimately cataloging a collection of approximately 100 artifacts. Additionally, the intern will attend meetings in the Collections and Education sections, learn about proper artifact handling, and assist with preparing objects for presentation to the Acquisitions Committee for acquisition or deaccession.
