Theresa Quill, Visiting GIS Librarian, theward@indiana.edu, 812-855-6924, IUB Map Collection at the Wells Library, Wells Library E264, 1320 E. 10th St.

An intern is needed to complete the digitization of IU’s Cyrillic map collection.  Indiana University’s Cyrillic map collection consists of maps in the Cyrillic alphabet. The bulk of this collection is made up of the Soviet Red Army topographic maps, which were produced for defense and economic planning. This collection came to Indiana University from the duplicate map room of the Library of Congress Map Collection in the early 1990s. These maps cover not only parts of Russia and Eastern Europe, but extend as far north as Scandinavia, as far west as Germany and the Netherlands, and as far south as Iran. Currently, about 700 maps have been digitized and uploaded into a Fedora database: http://webapp1.dlib.indiana.edu/images/splash.htm?scope=images/VAC9619

However, this only represents a small portion of this collection. The intern will be responsible for digitizing the remaining maps in the collection, creating metadata, and doing cartographic research to determine modern place names.

The internship is based in the Government Information, Maps, & Microforms department, located on the 2nd floor of the East Tower in the Wells Library. The intern reports to the Visiting GIS/Data Services Librarian. It is an unpaid position. Hours are flexible, approximately 5-10 per week.

The Curatorial Library at the Mathers Museum serves as a resource for catalogers and researchers, and thus is focused on sources related to material culture. Materials do not circulate outside the museum. Interns help develop standards for use and movement of items within the museum and evaluate existing and new items for inclusion as well as helping with standard tasks such as cataloging and shelving.

Ellen Sieber, Chief Curator, esieber@indiana.edu, 812-855-3944, Mathers Museum of World Cultures, 416 N. Indiana Avenue, Indiana University, Bloomington, IN

Illustrative ILS specializations of relevance to the museum’s research program include cataloging, source research, digital humanities, database design, information architecture, visualization, technology standards, social science information, audio and visual sources, indexing, intellectual property, metadata, ontologies, and the semantic web. Research projects can relate to the museum’s object collections, ethnographic field data in a range of media, and historical sources from diverse repositories including the museum itself. Research projects also entail engagements with complex scholarly literatures in which discovery, annotation, and information management are key issues.
