    BORN DIGITAL ARCHIVES @ GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM FELLOWSHIP APPLICATION

    2017-2018

    Fellowship information

    The purpose of the Born-Digital Archives Fellowship is to provide support for a MSLIS student with the

    Advanced Certificate in Archives to apply born-digital archival skills and practices in one of the citys

    great museums: the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. The fellowship allows students to apply the

    knowledge and skills they obtained from their course work in a professional setting while developing

    new skills through participation in an on-site internship. Relevant skills and technologies include

    managing born-digital records, digital forensics, file format migration, and email archiving, using open-

    source software such as ArchivesSpace and Archivematica.

    Archives projects are generally conducted from the Guggenheim Museum Offices (One Liberty Plaza)

    located in the Financial District.

    The fellowship recipient will commit to working on-site at the museum for 8 hours/week (120

    hours/semester for the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters; 30 weeks total from September 2017-May

    2018). This fellowship includes a scholarship in the amount of $5,000 that will be divided equally

    between the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters. Fellows must register for a course from the list of

    archives electives (https://www.pratt.edu/academics/information/advanced-certificates/archives/) in

    fall 2017 and LIS 698 Practicum/Seminar in spring 2018. If the fellowship recipient has previously taken

    LIS 665 Projects in Digital Archives, this requirement can be substituted with another archives course

    subject to the approval of the Dean of the School of Information. The successful applicant must take at

    least 6 credits in both the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters.

    Please note that continuing the fellowship through spring 2018 is contingent upon review of the fall

    2017 semester by Guggenheim Archives staff. The fellowship recipient will be selected by Guggenheim

    Museum archivists following an initial review by SI staff. Official notification will be made by mid-June

    2017.

    Please contact the SI Office with questions about the fellowship and/or application process.
