Collection Development & Digital Collections

Students in the division of Collection Development & Digital Collections work in a team environment to help preserve and build Mann's collections. Students working on digital collections help create scans and optical character recognition (OCR) of books, journals, documents and faculty papers, as well as other tasks involved with creating digital collections such as metadata and uploading to online repositories. They also help the department's selectors in making informed decisions with new or gift acquisitions by searching bibliographic records in the library catalog, databases and other digital collections. Dependability and conscientious attention to detail are required.

Mann is not hiring for this division at this time.

Administration

Mann's Administration office hires students to help with its diverse public affairs and outreach activities. Student assistants create online web pages, virtual exhibits, digital film clips and podcasts, produce outreach materials (brochures, posters, flyers, bookmarks, etc.), assist with exhibits, and help orchestrate special events. Students hired for web production should have strong web-related skills (will be working with HTML, Dreamweaver, Flash, FinalCut) in addition to excellent graphics skills. Graphics assistants will need to be proficient in Photoshop and other digital imagery software. Much of our Admin office work requires a fair dose of creativity, alert problem-solving skills, and the ability to work independently and handle sudden project changes. Conscientious commitment to producing high-quality publications is a must.
