  • The Franklin D. Roosevelt Library and the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute (FERI) offer Roosevelt Archival Internships to undergraduate- and graduate-level students. Preference may be given to students majoring in history, political science, archival, library, or computer/information science.

    Research skills, basic computer skills, familiarity with the Internet, and knowledge of Windows, Word Perfect, and Access database software are particularly valuable. Some familiarity with the history of the Franklin D. Roosevelt presidency (1933-1945) is helpful.

    Roosevelt interns work at the FDR Library as part of a team of other interns and staff professionals to organize and automate archival materials, make indices, find aids, and databases, digitize documents and photographs, and assist with other archival and museum projects. The work schedule is Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.

    Internships can last six or seven weeks and must take place during the summer break (mid-May through the end of August). The FDR Library is in Hyde Park, New York, a rural/suburban town 80 miles north of New York City. There may be an opportunity for one or two interns to work on the New Deal Network website project in New York City.

    Interns receive a stipend of $1,200 to $1,400 ($200 per week). The internships are funded by the William R. Emerson Archival Internship Fund and by the FDRL/FERI Roosevelt Internship Program, both of which are managed by FERI.

October 5, 2015

by Erica Lewis

Oh, yes, group projects. When it comes to group projects, you either love 'em or hate 'em. There's really no in-between. So how do you keep your cool when you can't stand your partners or the project itself? Divide the work evenly. Don't let one person do all the work and then have the other names attached to the project. Although the load may be carried more heavily by one [...]
