Library Studies Internship

The Fairfield Museum and History Center’s research library offers an unpaid 12-week Internship for students interested in archives, museums, and special libraries. The intern will work with the library director on projects including processing new collections, updating finding aids, digitizing photographs and documents, and responding to reference queries on local history and genealogy. Other projects may be developed based on the intern’s interests and time commitment.

The Fairfield Museum and History Center is a regional museum dedicated to expanding the community’s understanding of its past through dynamic exhibitions and public programming. The library serves patrons from the local area and around the country with its collection of archives, historical photographs, books on local history and culture, and genealogical resources, and is the base for the museum’s exhibits and educational programs.
