This is an opportunity to work with highly trained conservators and museum professionals on the preservation of the contents of an iconic presidential home.
The internship will include training in the use of the Re:Discovery ICMS museum collections database, as well as hands-on work with collections to understand the intricacies of managing museum collections during a major move. It will include working with collections previously housed in a high humidity environment which may have resulted in damage from mold. In such situations, the intern will be provided appropriate personal protective equipment (respirator, gloves, coveralls) and will be required to pass a respiratory test conducted by a medical provider to determine their ability to were a hood respirator for work purposes. The intern will be trained in the proper handling and basic cleaning and stabilizations of collections by an experienced and professionally trained conservator.
