Dear Dr. Peter Wosh,
> My name is Jennifer Allen. I am the Manuscript Librarian with the
> Gilder Lehrman Collection, an archive that focuses on American
> History. I understand that we have had students from your New York
> University archive program who have volunteered with us in the past.
> We are once again looking for volunteers and were wondering if any of
> your students would be interested?
> The volunteer/intern would primarily assist us with digitizing our
> Henry Knox Collection, which consists of over 10,000 manuscript
> documents. It is our goal to have most of this collection fully
> digitized within the next six months. At this point we are more than
> half way done and have a little over 4,000 records that still need to
> be scanned.
> We are looking for a student or students who can assist us with the
> scanning and who have some prior experience working with primary
> sources. The students will be working with original 18th century
> documents and using an Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner. They may
> also do some image processing and database work.
> Please let me know if any of your students are interested in this
> position? We would also be willing to participate in a practicum or
> some other school credit program. Students can contact me directly at
> 212-787-6616 x206 or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
> Thank you,
> Jennifer Allen
