Job Posting (part time): Archives Assistants, Chicago Public Media (WBEZ)

04 Jan 2019 8:24 AM | Janet Olson (Administrator)

Chicago Public Media is working on a digitization project to make WBEZ's unique and at-risk historical programming accessible. With over 12,000 hours of audio material recently digitized, we will be working on completing the cataloging and creation of a fully searchable system for access to our content. 

The Position

We are looking to hire multiple part-time archives assistants to assist with the cataloging process. Specific tasks may include quality control of materials returned from digitization and creating metadata for digital and physical recordings.

Position is part-time, temporary, and begins ASAP with a start date of no later than Feb. 1 2019 with a rate of $12 an hour. There is flexibility in scheduling and an option to work remotely.

Students in the process of receiving their MSI or MLIS encouraged, but not required. Experience or interest in Collective Access, PBCore metadata, audio preservation, radio production, Chicago history, or digital libraries and archives is a plus.
