Website Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP)

A small, independent federal agency, the ACHP oversees the historic preservation review process for federal projects and manages a variety of preservation programs dealing with national preservation policy and legislation, promoting public appreciation of cultural heritage, Indigenous peoples interests, climate change and sustainability, reusing historic building stock for contemporary needs, building a more inclusive preservation program, workforce development, and youth engagement.

Assist in identifying, naming, and organizing digitized historical records. The intern would help catalog recently digitized ACHP files, create file plans, and identify and propose key words to help build a searchable database. This work would allow the intern to learn about the history of the ACHP from original sources and propose ways to better document and preserve the digital information for the future. The intern will also become familiar with the work of Office of Federal Agency Programs.
