Many Voices, One Nation website content intern (http://americanhistory.si.edu/2-west-nation-we-build-together/many-voices-one-nation)
The Many Voices, One Nation exhibition will open in summer 2017 with an accompanying website. The exhibit team would like to feature many of the exhibit’s objects on this website, with live links to the collections.si.edu page. However, many of the objects in the exhibition are not yet on the collections.si.edu page. We require a student who will conduct research, write labels, and input needed data into the collections database so they may be processed and publicized on the web.
- Student will learn to research from material culture and museum acquisition files
- Student will learn to write object labels for public use by combining original research with secondary source research
- Student will be trained on museum database software (XG) and learn to update object files
Deadline Jan 17, 2017 by 12pm!
