The Cross Trust is pleased to be supporting The National Library of Scotland in offering two four-week internships working with special collections to begin in late July 2019. 


The interns will gain experience handling a large number and variety of rare books, and applying fundamental descriptive processes to make accessible archive and manuscript collections. Curators from Rare Books and Archives and Manuscript Collections will act as mentors throughout the internships, and on a day- to- day basis the interns will work with colleagues in a number of different areas of the Library, including the Collections Care, Digital, and Special Collections Reading Room teams.

Please note the deadline for applications is 22 May 2019.
