The Princeton University Library Preservation Office is offering a
9-12 month internship in paper conservation.  The internship begins
in September 1999 and is open to third-year graduate students
enrolled in a recognized conservation degree program, or its
equivalent, and who are eligible to work in the U.S.  The internship
will provide a full and practical learning experience conserving art
on paper, paper-based artifacts, and other related materials.  Under
the supervision of the paper conservator, internship activities will
be focused on conserving the unique special collections of Princeton
University Library.  Activities will include: executing a variety of
conservation treatments; collection condition surveys; various types
of collection rehousing; and materials research. The intern will
further assist in other aspects of the conservation laboratory's
daily duties.

The internship includes a stipend of $1,000/month for the duration
of the internship.  No benefits will be provided by Princeton
