San Diego Natural History Museum Research Library Graduate Internship

Overview

The San Diego Natural History Museum Research Library seeks library and information science student interns to assist in various library projects.

Job Description

Primary responsibilities include assisting in digitizing and cataloging our collection of historical photographs, field notes, diaries, and other primary documents from our archives that document the early years of the Natural History Museum (founded in 1874). Our naturalists and research scientists have been actively documenting animals, plants, and fossils throughout southern California and Baja California since the late 1800s. Other responsibilities include research, answering reference questions, shelving of materials, and general library maintenance as needed.

As an intern, you will gain experience digitizing materials and assigning metadata; you will also learn what it is like to function in a research library within a vibrant museum with a dedicated and enthusiastic staff, who view their work as a calling, not a job. Internship hours are flexible and some remote work is a possibility.

Although we cannot offer paid compensation, we offer valuable experience. In a recent email, a former intern now in graduate school stated: “I can’t begin to express how valuable the work I did at the Natural History Museum is going to be in school. One of my classes is dealing with cultural institutions and I am actually considering using some of the work I did as part of my final project for the class.”

We can coordinate with the candidate’s graduate program regarding academic credit for this internship as appropriate.

About the San Diego Natural History Research Library

The Museum maintains a complete natural history reference library, with greatest strengths in the historic research interests of the institution – botany, entomology, geology, herpetology, ornithology, mammalogy, marine invertebrates, and paleontology. The 56,000 volume collection includes both standard and obscure references, journals, rare books, and maps. Our other collections include photographic prints, slides, the Klauber Herpetological Library, works of art on natural history subjects, and an archive of materials related to the Museum’s history of scientific exploration and research.

The Research Library is under the direction of Margaret Dykens, MS (Biology), College of William and Mary; MLIS, University of Michigan.  Ms. Dykens is curator of the museum’s permanent library exhibit, Extraordinary Ideas from Ordinary People: A History of Citizen Science and is the author of Plant Portraits: the California Legacy of A. R. Valentien (2003).

To learn more about our library, please visit our website at www.sdnhm.org/science/research-library.

Application Procedure

To apply for this internship, please send a cover letter and a brief CV to the Library Director at library@sdnhm.org.
