The Junior Fellows Program at the Library of Congress

The Junior Fellows Program at the Library of Congress is accepting applications for summer 2017. This is a paid opportunity and many projects do not require any previous library experience.

Information about the program is available here, including detailed project descriptions. Of particular interest to our field is the Prints & Photographs project:

Process a collection of historical photochrom prints, which include views from around the world (such as landscapes, architecture, street scenes, and daily life and culture), and were made between the 1890s and 1910, using a photomechanical process. The Junior Fellow would inventory each print, capturing title, date, and publication information in an Access database, which would later be converted to catalog records. The Fellow would also select prints; scan them for presentation in the Library’s catalog; learn to manage the digital files that he/she creates; and draft MARC catalog records for selected prints. A selection of prints previously processed by the Prints and Photographs Division is available at: http://www.loc.gov/pictures/collection/pgz/.

SIGHTSEEING: Vision and the Image in Early Modern Europe

skm_c284e16120115220_0001Curated by the students of ArtH 211
under the supervision of Professor Susan Aberth

Exhibition in the Stevenson Library Vitrines

November 29- December 29, 2016


Please come visit the camera obscura set up behind the campus center by ARTH 211, “Sightseeing.” The class built the camera obscura with a grant from the Experimental Humanities program. If there is sun, the camera will produce a beautiful “natural” image, made by light rays reflecting from objects outside the box onto its interior surface.

The camera obscura will be set up until Sunday (12/4) afternoon.
