The USTC hosts an active programme of internships. This is intended to provide scholars and students interested in developing an interest in bibliography with an opportunity to work with the project team in St Andrews. They will receive instruction in rare books cataloguing and have the chance for hands-on experience with the University Library’s uncatalogued 17th century collections.
In addition to physical bibliography, the internship will involve extensive practice in the manipulation of digital resources.
In the year 2012 the project group hosted a team of four interns from the universities of Erlangen, Amsterdam, Harvard and St Andrews. It is intended to recruit a team of similar size for the year 2013.
The internship will be for a period of 6-8 weeks, and will generally fall in the months between May and July. The USTC will meet the costs of transportation to and from St Andrews, and contribute a subvention towards accommodation costs. There is no further remuneration attached.
Terms and conditions, and an application form are attached. Further enquiries should be directed to Professor Andrew Pettegree at email@example.com.
The deadline for applications is 31 December 2012, and successful candidates will be notified in January 2013.
