My feedback and contributions were acknowledged in Art Documentation, vol. 34, no. 2 (Fall 2015) “Transferable Skills and the Nontraditional Workplace: A Case Study of Internships with an Art and Design Theory-Focused Journal,” by Rachel Isaac-Menard of Adelphi University.
Abstract—The author outlines a librarian internship in the virtual, nontraditional context of an open-access scholarly journal and research group called Architecture_MPS (architecture_media_politics_society). This group also organizes academic events and offers research materials in its primary area of study—architecture—and the related fields of art, sociology, and design. The importance of such training opportunities is placed in the context of the changing nature of the workplace and, in particular, the ever-more-difficult job-seeking process for librarians. This type of internship indicates possible ways forward for the training of librarians in the humanities and other fields that could help prepare library students for the workplaces of the future.
