Dumbarton Oaks 75th Anniversary Social Media Internship
In 2015, The Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection will celebrate its seventy-fifth anniversary. The Dumbarton Oaks Archives is seeking a summer intern to assist with social media postings related to this event. Activities and responsibilities include (1) researching the institute’s personnel and activities during its first decade of operation, 1940 to 1950, using the resources of the Dumbarton Oaks Archives and Library as well as on-line resources; (2) preparing from this research short illustrated postings for (a) the Dumbarton Oaks website, including an illustrated timeline slider, (b) possibly a stand-alone blog to be initiated and designed by the intern, and (c) various established blog and Facebook pages; and (3) daily tweets on the institute’s history to be published through Twitter. No html or other coding experience or publication experience is required, although some familiarity with social media and web/blog posting is desirable. Demonstrated research and creative writing skills would be an advantage.
