Overview

Yosemite National Park was set aside as a state reserve in 1864, and designated as a National Park in 1890.  Its museum is one of the earliest in the National Park system, and now cares for a collection of over 4 million natural and cultural items.  The park’s widely-varied collections include photographs, fine art, archives, historic artifacts, maps, baskets and other ethnographic objects, a herbarium, biological and geological specimens, and archeological artifacts.  These collections are exhibited to the public in Yosemite and are loaned to other institutions for exhibit and research.  Researchers from inside the National Park Service, academics and members of the public also work with these holdings.

Part of the collection is exhibited and stored in the Yosemite Museum building in Yosemite Valley, a historic structure which is being nominated as a National Historic Landmark.   Material from the Yosemite Museum collection is currently exhibited in the Indian Cultural Exhibit and Museum Gallery within this building, as well as at the Pioneer Yosemite History Center in Wawona.  The museum office is located in this building as well, and will be the museum intern’s primary worksite.  Special assignments may require travel to other areas in the park.

Position Description

This internship provides an introduction to museum work and the National Park Service.  The intern will work with the museum staff in Yosemite Valley, and will be involved in a variety of museum program activities including:

  • Researching and cataloging cultural and natural materials from the museum collections
  • Formatting and entering museum database information
  • Inventorying collections
  • Performing a variety of collections management functions including preventive conservation and insect pest management

During the summer of 2013, the intern will also:

  • Perform preventive maintenance and inventory in the diorama of the Indian Cultural Exhibit, and rewrite and replace interpretive labels
  • Prepare material on at least three separate artifacts for the “collections” section of the park website, researching, writing text and gathering illustrative material for the website

Opportunities for additional training and education related to park resources will be provided as they arise (researcher lectures on site, special projects, etc.)

Qualifications

Candidates must possess good organizational and analytical skills and have good attention to detail. Strong written and oral communications skills are also necessary.  Ideally, applicants will have interests in the fields of history, anthropology, environmental studies, conservation, information management, and/or museum or library collections management.

Candidates must be willing to deal with the challenges of working in a beautiful but remote area.  Access to a car during the internship is strongly recommended.  The intern should be comfortable living in a remote, rural area in dormitory-style housing for eight weeks. 

Compensation

The intern will receive a stipend from the Bill Lane Center for living expenses. All transportation arrangements will be the responsibility of the intern. Housing will be provided at no cost to the intern either in El Portal, CA. about 15 miles from Yosemite Valley or in Midpines, CA, about 35 miles from Yosemite Valley.  Interns will be provided with coed hostel-style accommodations, with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities.  Interns should be comfortable living in a remote area, with limited access to amenities such as internet and cell phone service, not to mention shopping and entertainment facilities.

Infrequent bus service for commuting between Midpines and Yosemite Valley is available, but access to a car during the internship is strongly recommended. The intern also is responsible for transportation to the internship at the start of the summer, and from the internship upon completion.

Yosemite National Park was set aside as a state reserve in 1864, and designated as a National Park in 1890.  Its museum is one of the earliest in the National Park system, and now cares for a collection of over 4 million natural and cultural items.  The park’s widely-varied collections include photographs, fine art, archives, historic artifacts, maps, baskets and other ethnographic objects, a herbarium, biological and geological specimens, and archeological artifacts.  These collections are exhibited to the public in Yosemite and are loaned to other institutions for exhibit and research.  Researchers from inside the National Park Service, academics and members of the public also work with these holdings.

Part of the collection is exhibited and stored in the Yosemite Museum building in Yosemite Valley, a historic structure which is being nominated as a National Historic Landmark.   Material from the Yosemite Museum collection is currently exhibited in the Indian Cultural Exhibit and Museum Gallery within this building, as well as at the Pioneer Yosemite History Center in Wawona.  The museum office is located in this building as well, and will be the museum intern’s primary worksite.  Special assignments may require travel to other areas in the park.
