Kress Internships in Paper Conservation

The New York Botanical Garden Library offers two six-month
internships in paper conservation, the first beginning on October 4,
1999; the second on July 1, 2000.  These positions, the Kress
Foundation Internships in Paper Conservation, will provide
experience working with the Library's Botanical Art and Illustration
Collection.  Working under the supervision of the Garden's
Conservation Librarian, the intern will assist with a conservation
survey of the collection, stabilization, preservation, and rehousing
procedures, carry out an independent research project, and prepare a
final report on the project.

Candidates must be currently enrolled in, or a graduate of, a
recognized program in paper, art, or book conservation.  These
six-month, full-time positions (35 hours per week) offer a stipend
of $447.00 per week.  There are no fringe benefits, but there will
be an allowance of $250.00 to be used during the period of the
internship for appropriate outside professional development. On-site
interview preferred.  Only U.S.employment eligible need apply.
Applicants may apply for either internship.  They should send a
detailed letter of application, a current resume, and three letters
of recommendation to:

    Judith Reed
