Application for Griffin Museum Internship Program

Library and Archive Management at the Griffin Museum of Photography

The Griffin Museum Internship Program is a rewarding experience for those who are interested in expanding their knowledge of both the daily operations involved in running a small library at a highly regarded museum and learning about the art of photography.

 

Aside from the museum gift shop where we display books for purchase, the museum has hundreds of other books that have been collected and donated to us over the years. Our long-term goal is to create a small library space for visitors, students and educators to take advantage of. Innovative thinkers and organizers would be encouraged to apply for an opportunity to propose and execute a plan for our library. The Library and Archive Management Intern would need to keep the audience of the museum in mind when creating a system for our library. How can it be accessible to our public? How can we get students and educators to use our space as a place to learn? In addition, the museum stores the archive of the renowned New England photographer Arthur Griffin. Part of this internship would include archiving Arthur Griffin's photographs and other documents.

 

Interns will be asked to work a minimum of one full day per week. We will work with your academic institution to meet internship requirements for course credits.

 

Please email for more information on deadlines and requirements.
