<ul><li><p> SI-Guggenheim Museum Fellowship Page 1 </p><p> 2017-2018 </p><p>BORN DIGITAL ARCHIVES @ GUGGENHEIM MUSEUM FELLOWSHIP APPLICATION </p><p>2017-2018 </p><p>Fellowship information </p><p>The purpose of the Born-Digital Archives Fellowship is to provide support for a MSLIS student with the </p><p>Advanced Certificate in Archives to apply born-digital archival skills and practices in one of the citys </p><p>great museums: the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. The fellowship allows students to apply the </p><p>knowledge and skills they obtained from their course work in a professional setting while developing </p><p>new skills through participation in an on-site internship. Relevant skills and technologies include </p><p>managing born-digital records, digital forensics, file format migration, and email archiving, using open-</p><p>source software such as ArchivesSpace and Archivematica. </p><p>Archives projects are generally conducted from the Guggenheim Museum Offices (One Liberty Plaza) </p><p>located in the Financial District. </p><p>The fellowship recipient will commit to working on-site at the museum for 8 hours/week (120 </p><p>hours/semester for the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters; 30 weeks total from September 2017-May </p><p>2018). This fellowship includes a scholarship in the amount of $5,000 that will be divided equally </p><p>between the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters. Fellows must register for a course from the list of </p><p>archives electives (https://www.pratt.edu/academics/information/advanced-certificates/archives/) in </p><p>fall 2017 and LIS 698 Practicum/Seminar in spring 2018. If the fellowship recipient has previously taken </p><p>LIS 665 Projects in Digital Archives, this requirement can be substituted with another archives course </p><p>subject to the approval of the Dean of the School of Information. The successful applicant must take at </p><p>least 6 credits in both the fall 2017 and spring 2018 semesters. </p><p>Please note that continuing the fellowship through spring 2018 is contingent upon review of the fall </p><p>2017 semester by Guggenheim Archives staff. The fellowship recipient will be selected by Guggenheim </p><p>Museum archivists following an initial review by SI staff. Official notification will be made by mid-June </p><p>2017. </p><p>Please contact the SI Office with questions about the fellowship and/or application process. </p></li><li><p> SI-Guggenheim Museum Fellowship Page 2 </p><p> 2017-2018 </p><p>Eligibility </p><p>To be eligible for consideration, an applicant must: </p><p>- Have started the MSLIS program no later than spring 2017 </p><p>- Have a graduation date of June 1, 2018 or later </p><p>- Have taken and completed the following courses prior to fall 2017: </p><p>LIS 625 Management of Archives &amp; Special Collections </p><p>LIS 654 Information Technologies </p><p>- Not have previously taken LIS 698 Seminar &amp; Practicum </p><p>- Have an expected graduation date of June 1, 2018 or later </p><p>Application submission &amp; deadline </p><p>To apply, send the following as one .pdf file to qlai@pratt.edu - </p><p> Completed scholarship application </p><p> Resume/CV </p><p> A list detailing your software/technology proficiency </p><p> Statement of purpose (1-2 pages explaining why youre applying for the fellowship and what </p><p>you hope to gain from the experience, etc.) </p><p>The deadline is 5pm EST, Monday, May 8, 2017. </p><p>APPLICANT INFORMATION </p><p>Name: </p><p>Pratt ID#: </p><p>E-mail: </p><p>Telephone: </p><p>STATEMENT OF ACCURACY </p><p>I hereby affirm that all the above stated information provided by me is true and correct to the </p><p>best of my knowledge. </p><p>mailto:qlai@pratt.edu</p></li><li><p> SI-Guggenheim Museum Fellowship Page 3 </p><p> 2017-2018 </p><p>Applicant signature Date </p></li></ul>
