NAI-based paper conservation internship offered

The National Archives of Ireland, on behalf of the Valuation Office and in conjunction with the Heritage Council, is offering an internship in paper conservation to a graduate in paper or archives conservation who graduated in 2012/2013. The internship is intended to give valuable practical experience of work with archival collections, in this case a large collection of mid-19th century maps.

The intern will assist an experienced conservator in work on the maps of the Valuation Office which are held in the National Archives. The maps comprise a large and unique collection of approximately 10,500 items which need cleaning, consolidation and flattening in preparation for use by researchers.

Closing date is 30 August and the internship will start on 23 September. It's a full time post, at the National Archives premises.
