Temporary Jobs Available at the State Archives

Three (3) full-time/time-limited positions are available at the State Archives in connection with the Digital Newspapers Project. To quote the ads:

The North Carolina State Archives (NCSA), in collaboration with North Carolina Exploring Cultural Heritage Online (NC ECHO) has received funding to digitize 30 reels of microfilm, representing all colonial newspapers and two titles representing western North Carolina in the nineteenth century. Over the next year, NCNDP will test different digitization vendors for quality and cost-effectiveness, establish best practices for outsourcing and inclusion in NC ECHO’s CONTENTdm collection management system, collaborate with K-12 stake holders, construct a detailed plan for funding a full-fledged newspaper digitization project, and seek funding for that project.

The positions available are a Project Coordinator/Archivist III (pdf) and two Project Archivist/Archivist I (pdf) positions.
