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, collection management, and preservation activities 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 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). This internship is for credit only.
