Website National Park Service/NCPE Internship Program

The Heritage Documentation Programs, comprised of the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) and Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) records historic architecture, engineering, and landscapes through the production of measured drawings, histories, and photographs for its Library of Congress collection.

This position will play a key role in updating and modernizing Heritage Documentation Programs’ (HDP) website. HDP is moving its website from HTML to a content management system (CMS). Training in CMS will be provided if needed. Applicants should be detail-oriented, with strong writing, editing, and proofreading skills. This internship will be offered remotely, so the ability to work independently (with regular check-ins with the project supervisor) is a priority. In addition to working on the technical details of moving web content, the intern will help address big-picture questions, such as the new website’s organization, navigability, and accessibility to multiple audiences. The final product will be a new public-facing website (or a substantial portion of the new website). If interested, the intern can develop new some thematic content or update existing content, such as for monthly commemorations. HDP consists of three related programs: The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), Historic American Engineering Record (HAER), and Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS). The programs document historical buildings, engineering, and cultural landscapes, and archive this material in a publicly-accessible manner. Staff members include architects, landscape architects, historians, a photographer, and a collections manager.
