The intern will also assist the Collections Committee in evaluating materials for deaccession, and help locate organizations as possible donation sources.All materials will be catalogued in our collections management software, PastPerfect Museum Software, which will then be uploaded to our online database. Experience with scanning at archival standards preferable, but will train the right person.
