 Nashua Public Library

 You will spend each week learning about a different job in the library, and see how a library is about so much more than the books. Learn about how the library works, from how they decide which books to buy to how they can help people with technology. In addition, you will work on a local history project to inventory of the library’s historical map collection and create a guide to the collection for use by our customers.  The historical map collection project will appeal to students who are interested in history and in working with primary source material in the context of library special collections.  The inventory will use Excel, and the department will provide training if necessary. As part of the inventory/reorganization process, the intern will identify maps that may require preservation/conservation. The intern will also identify maps that may be suitable candidates for digitization (out of copyright and unique), particularly in connection with GIS applications. Once the inventory has been completed, the maps will be reorganized in chronological order within the map case.  The intern will work with the library’s graphic designer and programming and marketing librarian to develop a brochure or other public-facing guide to the revamped map collection.
