Archival Internships

The Historical Society of Haddonfield Research Library is pleased to offer internship opportunities for individuals who wish to gain practical hands-on experience in a professional archival setting.

If you’re interested in other volunteer opportunities at the Historical Society, please click here.

Archival internships are developed on an individual basis and every effort is made to match the intern’s interests and expectations with the tasks assigned. Projects could include organizing and describing archival materials, digitizing collection materials, improving cataloging systems, or assisting with overall collections management and care. Interns also have opportunities to help with special projects, such as creating a new disaster plan and surveying uncatalogued collections.

Position Requirements:

For archival internships, the Historical Society gives preference to candidates who are currently enrolled in or have recently completed a graduate-level program in archival management, public history, or a closely related field. All prospective interns must have strong project management, writing, and communication skills, as well as a willingness to learn. Candidates must also be able to lift 40 pounds.

Interns who are receiving class credit for the internship must meet the requirements of the home department and make sure the Historical Society Archivist knows about the requirements as well. All interns should have at least eight hours per week to devote to their internship during normal business hours on Mondays, Tuesdays and/or Wednesdays.




November 15 for spring internships; April 15 for summer internships; July 15 for fall internships


Currently, the Historical Society does not have any internship stipends available.

To Apply:

Interested candidates should submit a cover letter and resume to Dana Dorman, Archivist and Librarian, Historical Society of Haddonfield, at library@haddonfieldhistory.org by the application deadline listed above. Successful candidates must also visit the Historical Society for an interview and submit a writing sample.


Donate any amount, including for a specific project! Add information on the donation payment page.
