We are currently developing our collections management program and need assistance in cataloguing our archives into the Past Perfect database.  Interns would be required to handle materials, measure, describe, and record information into the program. In addition, many items need proper archival housing.  An assessment needs to be made as to the appropriate materials required for each object.

 

We are also seeking to develop our exhibition spaces to include a permanent display of the history of Beacon and areas for changing exhibits.  We have three gallery spaces available in which to develop these concepts.  We would appreciate input from interns from concept development, design, production, and promotion.

 

Depending on the student’s knowledge and skills, our volunteers are open to learning about the latest research and procedures in the museum studies field.
