Reparative and Inclusive Description (RID) Survey Scholar Internship at Gleeson Library, Remote

Gleeson Library | Geschke Center at the University of San Francisco welcomes applications for a grant-funded, paid Reparative and Inclusive Description (RID) Survey Scholar internship, scheduled for fall semester 2022. The internship location can be remote or onsite at Gleeson Library. The position is oriented towards graduate students from any institution who have interests in social justice, anti-racism work, critical diversity studies, cataloging, indexing and taxonomies, history, or librarianship.
The RID Survey Scholar will use our Harmful Language Statement and relevant literature as a framework for developing recommendations on descriptive practices that align with anti-racism, diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives in the library and across campus. The Scholar will critically examine systemic harm or inequities in library descriptive practices by surveying existing collection records in both the Special Collections & University Archives and Metadata & Collection Management departments as well as identify potential community partners for collaborative projects. The Scholar will create a final paper or presentation that outlines recommendations for integrating reparative and inclusive descriptive practices into the library’s workflows, fostering an anti-oppressive approach to discovery and access.

The number of hours is negotiable to meet the intern’s needs, up to 135 hours total, with a maximum of nine hours per week, Monday through Friday, from late August 2022 through mid-December 2022. The pay rate is $26/hr plus benefits as applicable to location and student status. Candidates from underrepresented groups and identities are encouraged to apply.
