   SUBJECT:          Peace Digital Library Internship

Please excuse duplication on other lists.  Thank you.

January 21, 1998
Jeannette Rankin Library Program
United States Institute of Peace
Internship Opportunity

Effective immediately, an internship position is available at the Jeannette
Rankin Library Program to support the development of a peace agreements
digital collection.  This is an unpaid educational experience of short
duration designed to advance the professional development of graduate
students, primarily, but not exclusively, in the field of library and
information science.

The United States Institute of Peace is an independent, nonpartisan federal
institution created by Congress to promote research, education, and
training on the peaceful resolution of international conflicts.
Established in 1984, the Institute meets its congressional mandate through
an array of programs, including research grants, fellowships, professional
training programs, conferences and workshops, library services,
publications and other educational activities.

The Institute's Jeannette Rankin Library Program seeks to create a digital
collection of post-1989 peace agreements ending international conflicts,
and to contribute to the development of a federal digital library of
international relations resources.  Specifically, the initial goals of the
digital collection of peace agreements are:

yen  To collect, maintain and provide access via the World Wide Web to the
full text in English of peace agreements related to inter- and intrastate
conflicts since 1989, as a research and learning tool on peaceful means to
end international conflict.
yen  To collaborate with the United States Information Agency (USIA) in the
creation of a digital library with a focus on international affairs by
contributing metadata, or information about the Institute's digital
collection of peace agreements.
yen  To create a valuable digital collection for scholars and practitioners,
and the public at large, compatible with the mission of the Institute.

To our external audience, the peace agreements will be accessible in
several ways:

yen  Via the Institute's World Wide Web site (<http://www.usip.org>), and
searchable using the site's search engine.
yen  Thru queries on World Wide Web search engines, such as Alta Vista,
Lycos, etc.
yen  From the end-user interface of the USIA-sponsored digital library.

The unpaid internship position involves approximately 15 hours of work per
week during a semester.  Students may be able to arrange for academic
credit through their university.

Interns will be selected on the basis of motivation;  an informed interest
in international peace negotiations, or other issue in international
relations relevant to the Institute's mission;  computer literacy;
attitude, skills and ability to develop and work in accordance to goals and
objectives, to work independently and contribute to a team, and to
effectively utilize guidance in the implementation of work plans;  and,
ability to draft and generate reports and correspondence.

Interested individuals should submit a cover letter expressing interest in
the unpaid internship position and describing background in international
relations and library science, a completed application form (see below) and
a resume.  All applicants will be considered according to the above
criteria, and the needs and priorities of the digital collection project.
