Part-time position/internship– Archives Assistant, Florida Park Service (Tallahassee)

The Archives Assistant will focus primarily on pruning, integrating, safekeeping, and cataloging the Florida Park Service archives. There are also photographs, slides, and thousands of building/architectural plans to digitize and enter into PastPerfect (the collections management program used by the FPS). We do not expect a new employee to have experience with PastPerfect museum software or FPS procedures, but we do expect him/her to become experienced. The Archives Assistant should soon be able to answer questions from the field about PastPerfect and FPS collections management Dos & Don’ts. There may be some opportunities to work in the field and to travel to state parks to assist staff with park collections – though travel will not be required and with our ever-shrinking budget, it might not even be possible.

The OPS position would begin immediately and be paid $8/hr. The internship(s) would begin in January and be unpaid.

Folks interested should email me (, resume/CV attached.
