Janet Braga, Director
The intern will assist in developing an inventory of images and their source used in the Trust's signature publication, New York Archives. Within the next 24 months, the Trust will begin offering the magazine online. All images within our 55+ back issues need either permission verification for website display and/or determine if the original source of the image needs to be contacted to request permission. This position will also work with Trust staff to ensure current and future pdf documents on the Trust's website are accessible.
This position will offer a student insight into the process of producing a quarterly magazine. Not only will the student work at times with the publication's editor, he/she will be able to experience an editorial committee meeting where article submissions are reviewed and chosen for publication. Skills in identifying and modifying pdf documents to ensure their accessibility for online use will be taught if the student is unfamiliar with the practice. The intern will be exposed to the daily workings of an office, see first hand a development program in action and learn about the New York State Archives and its mission.
