Contract Archivist, Penobscot Marine Museum, Searsport

https://www.mainemuseums.org/Jobs/10695226

The Penobscot Marine Museum seeks a contract archivist (1099) for 1000 hours in 2021/2022.  The position, working with our nautical chart collection, will fulfill our goal to reconcile the chart catalog records for a complete and accurate inventory, identify annotated and unique nautical charts, and cull duplicates for educational use to be stored elsewhere, thereby freeing up space so we can properly rehouse the collection.  This is an excellent opportunity for professionals looking for short-term work.  The Project Archivist will have the skills and expertise to complete the project, consulting with the Curator on Penobscot Marine Museum’s cataloguing conventions and institutional history of the archive.  The Contract Archivist will work with a veteran team of Archives volunteers and a college intern to complete the task and will report to the Curator.
