    This is a paid internship in which the intern will assist the Digital Project Manager with development of a new digital history website, the Chronicle of African Americans in the Horse Industry. The goal of the Chronicle of African Americans in the Horse Industry is to create an online, interactive archive to house and display photos, documents, artifacts, and oral histories of African Americans who have worked, and continue to work in equine industries. Its users will be able to connect the past to the present. It is our intention to engage a diverse audience of people and communities to provide valuable input relating to the Chronicle. This will help us create a resource that is valued and useful. See www.imh.org/education/education-resources/chronicle.html for more information.

    The primary responsibilities for the Fall 2019 internship will be collection, formatting, and preparation of digital files for the website. The candidate must work well in a collaborative environment, possess strong communication skills, and have qualified experience and education.

    Additional opportunities may be possible to perform outreach to the community and other institutions to digitize materials for the website.

    This internship is made possible in part by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
