Overview

The Archives Practicum program is designed for new archivists with an interest in artistic, multimedia, and/or corporate records. This hands-on experience allows new professionals to gain skills and learn from Banff Centre’s Archivist.

The Archivist will mentor the participant in an area of interest such as digitization and digital archiving, arrangement and description, records management, or reference and outreach. The participant will also receive a general overview of the activities of an Archives and Records Management Centre, with introductions to all key aspects of archival practice.

What does the program offer?

This program offers an introduction to archival practice, and particularly one with large artistic, multimedia, and digital holdings. Practical experience may involve accessioning and describing records (which may be artistic and/or administrative in nature), or identifying and implementing best practices regarding preservation and digitization of audio-visual materials. These projects will provide practical experience in the main areas of the archival profession. 

Learning opportunities may also arise through attendance at lectures, workshops, and events related to arts programming at Banff Centre. Participants will also have the opportunity to focus on and conduct personal research activities as outlined in their learning objectives and project proposal.

Who should apply?

Practicum placements are appropriate for recent graduates of Master of Archival Studies (MAS) programs or Master in Library and Information Science (MLIS) programs, with an interest in archival work. Summer placements for students who have finished at least one year in a MAS/MLIS program will also be considered.

This is an opportunity for a new professional to gain experience and expand and develop their career and capabilities. The program requires a full-time commitment.
