Need an "Archives Gig?"

During the conversation last week on how to get a job in the Library, Archives and Special Collections field; it was brought to my attention that there is a related Facebook site for where you can find an "Archives Gig."  Similar to "I Need a Library Job," Archives Gig publishes posts for "careers, jobs, and internships in the world of Archives & Records Management."  In addition to Facebook, they update through LiveJournal and Twitter, so you can choose your method of information delivery.

If you want to see previous job related posts check out our "What It's Like to Be a Cataloger", and  "How Can I Get a Job? (Library, Archives, and Special Collections)."  Also make sure to check out Sister Smithsonian Blog: Smithsonian Institution Libraries' "Advice to a Librarian" (part 1 and 2).

And don't forget that Smithsonian internship deadlines for Summer 2011 are right around the corner!   

Happy hunting,

  1. I'm a little late on the uptake, but thanks for drawing attention to Archives Gig!

    I also think Arlene Schmuland has created a fantastic resource for archives job hunters over at
