Job opportunity part-time temporary project archivist

Hawken School is looking for a part-time, temporary project archivist.  Hours are flexible, and could be 12 hours per week for 6 months, or, longer hours per week for a shorter duration.

The current archives include primarily paperwork, publications, and photos. There is nothing of a “legal” nature in this set of information.

We are seeking someone to:

*   Evaluate the current organizational structure, and offer “best practices” recommendations for organization and extent of collections (for example, how many yearbooks should be kept per school year?
*   Continue to sort and document boxes
*   Create a process for storing and documenting planned and unplanned additions to the archives
*   Create a process and finding aid; recommend a system for check in/check out of materials
*   Recommend resources and coordinate conversion of various medium (VHS, old film, etc.)
