Internships – CUNY TV – Audiovisual and Digital Preservation

cuny tvInternship opportunity in audiovisual archiving and digital preservation at CUNY TV:

Based at the CUNY Graduate Center, CUNY TV is the largest public university television station in the U.S., producing and broadcasting programming on public affairs, education, science, business, and independent media. The archive at CUNY TV manages the near three-decade production history of the station, a broadcast library, the Himan Brown Radio Archive, and audiovisual collections produced within the City University of New York. CUNY TV’s collections cover a variety of analog and digital audiovisual formats, including 1/4″ reel audio, analog and digital video tape, and archival and broadcast digital formats.

Interns participate in cataloging and collection management within CUNY TV’s collections. Current archival projects include collection inventory and assessment (including processing and re-housing collections), digitization of legacy formats for preservation, archival workflow documentation, cataloging with item-level and finding-aid description (using PBCore). This is an excellent opportunity for those interested in pursuing a career in media archives in a busy broadcast and production environment.

This internship would be appropriate for students pursuing the archives and preservation certificate, and for those who are interested in digital preservation.  Preferably candidates should have experience with time-based media cataloging, audiovisual media handling,  digitization projects, and knowledge of metadata schemas (PBCore, Dublin Core).   We are looking for 1 or 2 interns to work within the time requirements for GLSIS internships (150 hours, approx. 10 hours per week) during 9-5 weekdays .  This internship is for credit only.
