M-LEAD Internships

M-LEAD (Museum Library Education and Digitization) was a three year IMLS-funded grant providing graduate students from Pratt Institute's School of Information and Library Science learning experiences in the NYARC libraries.  Depending on individual library needs, interns worked on projects ranging from cataloging to web archiving, with the common goal of training new museum library professionals and increasing access to our shared collections.  From Fall 2012 - Spring 2015, fifteen talented interns contributed to these efforts, while gaining valuable hands-on experience in an art library setting.  This collaboration with Pratt continues today through their fellowship program that places interns in the NYARC libraries to work on a variety of projects ranging from cataloging to digital preservation.
