The Ringling has published a members’ newsletter since 1964. Most of these newsletters are digitized; others are waiting to be digitized and OCR’d (optical character recognition). Ultimately, the Library would like to provide access to these publications on Florida State University’s public access catalog, DigiNole. The Ringling has the largest art reference library in the southeastern United States this flexible and remote internship can help students enrolled in either undergraduate or graduate programs related to library and information science / archives.

Learning Outcomes (list below): 1. Understand and apply MODS metadata elements to real-world examples; 2. Obtain a working knowledge of best practices in digital stewardship. 3. Learn about John Ringling and the history of his museum. 4. Learning about controlled vocabularies and library standards.
