‘Ulu‘ulu The Henry Ku‘ualoha Giugni Moving Image Archive of Hawaiʻi has begun accepting applications for the 2018 Roselani Media Preservation Internship, which allows an intern to work side-by-side this summer with experienced archivists while earning a $3,000 stipend.

The Roselani Media Preservation Internship was established by ʻUluʻulu, which is located on the UH West Oʻahu campus, in cooperation with the Henry Ku‘ualoha and Muriel Roselani Giugni Fund through the Hawaii Community Foundation. The internship helps give a student committed to the preservation of our media history an opportunity to acquire practical experience in a moving image archive.

During that time interns may be employed in cataloguing, processing and creating inventories of archival materials, cleaning and re-housing of materials, digitization, and social media information management.
