Internship opportunities sought

North Bennet Street School (NBSS) is actively seeking summer
internship opportunities for students of its full-time two-year
Bookbinding Program. Ideally we seek supervised internships in
either conservation or binding. Capabilities at time of internship
include cloth bindings and repairs, boxes, and paper repair
(first-year students) or cloth and leather bindings and  repair,
finishing, cloth and leather boxes, paper repair, (second-year
students). Students are typically available for three months (June,
July, and August).

North Bennet Street School has the only full-time bench bookbinding
program in North America. The two-year program was started in 1986.
Class meets 35 hours a week from September through May at the
school's main campus in Boston's North End. Only six students are
admitted each year. For more details about our Bookbinding Program,
see <URL:>. NBSS is accredited by the
Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology

NBSS has placed interns in recent years at Uppsala University
Library (Sweden), Northeast Document and Conservation Center, The
Boston Athenaeum, and Haverford College.

If you have a summer internship opportunity in either conservation
or binding or are interested in developing one for an NBSS student,
