Anne Cong-Huyen, Digital Scholarship Strategist

Description of Internship Project and Intern’s Role and Responsibilities

The University of Michigan Library seeks a summer intern interested in exploring program development in digital scholarship. The intern will work closely with the library’s Digital Scholarship Service team in designing public programming and graduate-centered opportunities related to digital scholarship, with a particular emphasis on assessment and user research. This programming may include working on assessing our Digital Scholarship Certificate pilot, the Anti-Racist Digital Research Initiative, our online exhibits, text and data mining support, or public events that bridge digital practices and topics related to the library’s diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and anti-racism goals (e.g., Ada Lovelace Day, Douglass Day, Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon). These events are often hosted in collaboration with community or campus partners and are open to the public.

Because of the project emphasis on user research, we encourage applicants who are especially interested in engaging with their student peers. The intern will also have the opportunity to work with a range of library specialists and learn a variety of skills important to working in public engagement, such as accessibility, assessment, project management, marketing and communications, and service design.
