Women Who Rock / UW Digital Libraries Initiative Internship


Submission/Application Deadline: 
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 – 5:00pm

Not-For-Credit Internship Opportunity: one student is needed to help describe and archive born digital materials from the Women Who Rock Research Project [WWRRP]. Women Who Rock Research Project supports, develops, and circulates cultural production, conversations and scholarship by cultural producers and faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates across disciplines, both within and outside the University, who examine the politics of gender, race, class, and sexuality generated by popular music. The goal is to generate dialogue and provide a focal point from which to build and strengthen relationships between local musicians and their communities, and educational institutions. Find out more about the project.

As part of the WWRRP, this student will be working with staff of the University of Washington Libraries Digital Initiatives and members of the Women Who Rock project team. The student will harvest and augment metadata for images and project ephemera and prepare the files and metadata for upload into CONTENTdm, a media management software program used by the UW and other libraries worldwide.

This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience using data dictionaries, controlled vocabulary, metadata and CONTENTdm. Work created as part of this project will be accessible via a freely available online archive and can thus be used as a tangible example for a portfolio.
