Volunteer, Archives Project for SLA - New England, Boston, MA

Are you looking to use some of the skills you are learning in your Archives classes at Simmons? A volunteer opportunity is available to organize approximately 4 boxes of materials located in the Simmons Archives on campus.  They originated from a former chapter of Special Libraries Association of New England, and need to be inventoried, documented and added to the existing archives collection of the current SLA-NE chapter.

This project can be completed by one student over the course of a semester, or if there are multiple volunteers, it can be a team effort.  This project can begin in January, and time commitment can vary according to your schedule.  There will be minimal supervision, so a self-starter with a bit of archives experience and/or classwork is preferred.

Please contact Susan McGovern at  suemcg820@yahoo.com for further details.
