As an independent system, separate from the New York and Queens libraries, Brooklyn Public Library (BPL) serves the borough's 2.6 million residents, offering thousands of public programs, millions of books and use of more than 1,100 free Internet-accessible computers. The Greenpoint Digital Records Project is part of a larger effort by Brooklyn Public Library to create an accessible repository for the environmental history of the Greenpoint community. BPL is currently constructing a new Greenpoint Library and Environmental Education Center at the site of the former branch. In addition to traditional library services the new facility will provide programs, information and collections that increase awareness and stewardship of the local environment.
BPL seeks to hire a part-time Greenpoint Digital Records Coordinator Intern to acquire digital versions of past and current local remediation reports, and make them accessible and searchable by the public. The project is funded by a grant from the Greenpoint Community Environmental Fund.
The Records Coordinator will be based out of BPL’s Central Library but will also spend time at Leonard Library to review the records housed there.
This is a 12-week internship, paid by stipend. Work scheduled is up to 19 hours per week.
Brooklyn Public Library is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
