‘Ulu‘ulu: The Henry Ku‘ualoha Giugni Moving Image Archive of Hawai‘i at the University of Hawai‘i–West O‘ahu is now accepting applications for the 2023 Roselani Media Preservation Internship, which offers a stipend of $6,000. The deadline to apply is April 15.
During this remote internship that will take place from June through August for 10 consecutive weeks (30 hours per week), the intern will work virtually side-by-side with experienced archivists and gain valuable experience in a moving image archive.
‘Ulu‘ulu is Hawai‘i’s official state archive for moving images and is dedicated to the care, preservation, and digitization of film and videotape related to the history and culture of Hawaiʻi. ‘Ulu‘ulu, in cooperation with the Hawai‘i Community Foundation, established the Roselani Media Preservation Internship.
The purpose of the Roselani Internship is to give a student of merit who is committed to the preservation of our media history — which covers the political, cultural and historical landscape of these islands — the opportunity to acquire practical experience in a moving image archive.
The student selected as the 2023 Roselani Intern must be committed to the preservation of our media history and enrolled in or a recent graduate of a moving image or archival academic program.
Intern activities at ‘Ulu‘ulu may include opportunities in:
• Cataloguing using media asset management software
• Processing and creating inventories of archival audiovisual materials
• Preservation activities, including cleaning and re-housing of audiovisual materials, and environmental monitoring
• Digitization of videotapes, documents, and photographs
• Social media information management
In addition, the 2023 Roselani Internship at ‘Ulu‘ulu is a host site for the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) Pathways Fellowship Program. AMIA Pathways Fellows may complete their internship at ‘Ulu‘ulu if accepted into both programs. To be eligible for the Internship and Fellowship, applicants must also apply for the AMIA Pathways Fellowship.
