:  Information Resource Center
Title:  Collection Analysis Intern
Description:  The WWF Information Resource Center is a full-service special library.  The IRC has recently moved to a new space, and will be reducing the overall size of the print collection.  In order to ensure continued availability of the unique and rare items in our collection, a detailed collection analysis will be performed before deselection begins.
The Collection Analysis Intern will prepare MARC records from the IRC’s holdings for analysis against WorldCat.  Using the reports generated from that analysis, she or he will make recommendations for deselection.  Time permitting, the intern will begin the process of deaccessioning.
The ideal Collection Analysis Intern candidate is a current student or recent graduate of an accredited information sciences program, with an interest in collection development or cataloging.  Background in ecology, conservation science, or environmental issues a plus.
Stipend:  Small stipend or eligible as a practicum for course credit
Duration:  Fall Semester (mid-September start)
