This summer do you fancy a paid internship to work in a museum? If so, look no farther than the Classics Department’s Ure Museum. The Ure Museum is pleased to announce an internship for Summer 2014, offered through the Reading Internship Scheme (at CPEC): see http://www.reading.ac.uk/careers/RIS/current.asp for details and how to apply.
The intern will curate the Ure Museum digital image collection—up to 20,000 images documenting the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology, especially objects in its collection, related objects, events and archives—as part of a larger project to research and distinguish the audiences for the Ure Museum’s digital provision. The intern will work with curators and archivists to distinguish images according to their potential audiences, organise them and direct them to the appropriate means of digital publication. Successful completion of this project will increase the uptake in the usage of this important resource via social media, international networks (such as Europeana, the EU’s digital library) as well as the University’s own website and databases.
This is a 5-week internship for Summer 2014. Participating students are required to attend the pre-placement workshop at UoR on either 11th or 18th June 10am-12pm.
Applications due 1st June so don’t hesitate!
