BitCuratorEdu Guidelines for Hosting Remote Internships

Jess Farrell, Sheridan Sayles, Meg Tuomala, Hannah Wang | BitCuratorEdu Project


These guidelines are aimed at information professionals who wish to provide remote internship opportunities to students who seek practical experience in digital curation and preservation. Although the need for remote internships has recently increased due to COVID-19, hopefully these guidelines will also support ongoing efforts to offer remote internships for students and host institutions that are geographically separated.

The guidelines are available for free download as a PDF or Google Doc, below.
