Plan II offers an internship program at the Harry Ransom Center that is designed to provide advanced undergraduates with experience in the nature and operations of a major humanities research center. The experience gained by interns will benefit them in their own research projects, in possible graduate studies, and even as a career option in such fields as librarianship, museum studies, and archival or curatorial work. In addition to providing general support for Ransom Center programs and services, an intern may be asked to work in any and all of the following areas:
answering research queries
conducting bibliographic searches
preserving collection materials
doing editorial and publicity work
working on website enhancement projects.
The internship will be for the whole academic year, fall and spring semester, or in exceptional cases for the fall only. There will be opportunities to work in a number of different departments of the Center, learning multiple skills, from preservation to collection processing and editorial work. For the year-long internship there will also be an opportunity to work on actual exhibitions designed by the Center. For all interns there will be an orientation period during the last week of August.
