Summer internship at the Outer Banks History Center

The Outer Banks History Center, a regional archival facility administered by the State Archives of North Carolina, is offering a 10-week internship through the State of N.C. Internship Program during the summer of 2018. Graduate students and undergraduate juniors and seniors who are permanent residents of N.C. are eligible to apply. This is a full-time, paid position. In addition, the Friends of the Outer Banks History Center will cover the cost of housing at the Friends of Elizabeth II Guest House in Manteo for the duration of the internship.
The Archival Processing and Outreach Intern will perform hands-on work with historical documents held in the Bill Harris Papers (ca. late 19th century-1990s), an extremely vital historical collection for both the Outer Banks community and the larger research community. The collection contains unprecedented documentation of early life in coastal North Carolina, including photographs, genealogical research, and oral histories with prominent Outer Banks families. The intern will establish initial physical and intellectual control of the Bill Harris Papers, process the collection according to current archival standards, and create a descriptive online finding aid for the collection. Throughout this process, the intern will promote the collection by sharing their experiences on social media; designing educational materials, brochures, and pamphlets; and/or creating an exhibit using materials in the collection. Specific outreach activities will be conducted according to the intern’s individual skills and preferences.
To apply, please follow the directions in the attached program booklet to submit an application through the State of N.C. Internship Program. The application deadline is January 15th. Questions about the Outer Banks History Center and the work of the internship should be directed to Samantha Crisp, Director of the Outer Banks History Center, at samantha.crisp@ncdcr.gov or 252-473-2655.
