*Conservation and Archiving of the Records of the Recreation Division*

As the Recreation Division embarks on a major long-range strategic plan for
the conservation and development of facilities which will benefit the youth
and families of Baltimore, a priority is the preservation of documents from
the past which may help to inform those decisions.  The collection consists
of such materials as newspaper articles, event flyers, photos, and other
documents, which have been accumulated over an extended period of 50-70
years. The intern will assist in planning and implementing the process to
archive, preserve, and scan the materials into a high resolution format.
Experience and skill in archival processing, paper and photograph
conservation techniques, and digitization best practices desirable;
especially recommended for advanced undergraduate or graduate students in
such fields as library science or museum and historical studies.
