Newspaper Digitization Research Intern

(Fixed Term Appointment, Full-time, 4 months)

The University of British Columbia | Okanagan Campus

DESCRIPTION:

The Library at UBC’s Okanagan campus invites applications from recently graduated librarians or archivists for a unique 1.0 FTE, 4 month fixed term position as Newspaper Digitization Research Intern.  The Okanagan Library prides itself on being an inclusive place, a service-oriented team, and a nexus of scholarly engagement.  We lead by example, and empower by design.

UBCO Library is co-ordinating a multi-year project designed to digitize and provide online access to important historical resources held by memory institutions throughout the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia. Working with approximately fifteen community organizations, Digitized Okanagan History (DOH) is currently ingesting digital copies of photographs, archival documents and historical publications created or collected during a series of site visits. Access to these resources is being provided through a single collection (doh.arcabc.ca), which forms a part of Arca, British Columbia Electronic Library Network’s (BCELN) shared digital repository.

Recognizing the significant role played by newspapers in chronicling the history of the local communities of which they form an important part, we are now interested in expanding the project to include digitization of these important publications. This requires investigation and planning.

Working with two professional archivists, the intern will focus on the background research necessary to create a digitized collection of community-based newspapers for the Okanagan region. Specific tasks will include:

  • Creation of a comprehensive list of all newspapers ever published in the region;
  • Assessment of which publications currently exist;
  • Description of where materials are held and the formats in which they are available, and their material conditions;
  • Calculation of the number of issues and the total number of pages associated with each publication;
  • Liaison with individuals working in local memory institutions;
  • Determination of copyright status for each of the publications, and identification of the individual or company from whom permission would have to be obtained to allow for digitization of each of the newspapers;
  • Based on evidence and research compiled, generation of a report and project plan outlining options for the most effective and efficient means of digitizing each of the newspapers;
  • Creation of a template for assignment of standardized descriptive metadata for this project.

In addition, the intern will be expected to familiarize themselves with other newspaper digitization projects in order to help identify issues that might be of relevance to this project.

The intern may also have the opportunity to participate in the broader Digitized Okanagan History project, through the creation and collection of digital objects and/or the creation and assignment of metadata for these items.

ENVIRONMENT:

The University of British Columbia’s Okanagan campus is situated in Kelowna, about 400 km east of Vancouver in the heart of the Okanagan Valley.  Please have a look at the Tourism Kelowna website for more information about the area  www.tourismkelowna.com.

Currently, there are approximately 8,700 UBC Okanagan undergraduate and graduate students, 570 faculty members, and 650 ongoing staff appointments at UBC’s Okanagan campus. Administratively, the Okanagan campus Library reports to the Provost & Vice Principal.  Additionally, the Okanagan campus Library’s collections are integrated with UBC Library and library employees contribute to activities of the UBC Library. UBC’s Okanagan campus is an intimate learning environment with an excellent library infrastructure. Check out the campus website for more information  www.ok.ubc.ca.
