The research department interns will be on the front lines in the day-to-day operations of a major specialized library. Primarily, they will assist patrons by providing research material and answering questions that come in person, by letter, fax, phone and e-mail.

Typical duties include, but are not limited to: Gathering materials for researchers and re-shelving those materials; maintaining the appointment calendar; creating digital resources for researchers and staff; collections management and inventory; writing original material, using primary and secondary sources materials, for Hall of Fame publications; assisting staff with fact-checking and editing; providing support during Hall of Fame and Hall of Fame Library events; and assisting staff with document conservation.

Previous library and/or archives experience is strongly preferred. Candidates should be customer service-oriented, flexible, and energetic in nature, interested in history and baseball research, have enthusiasm for learning, be well-organized, and possess an attention for detail. Writing and editing experience is a plus, particularly if baseball-related, though it is not necessary.

Two positions available, graduate level preferred. Majors in Library Science, Archival Science, Information Science, History, English or similar.
