NEARA Welcomes Summer Intern

Northeast Arkansas Regional Archives (NEARA) is happy to announce that Erin Morgan will be the new summer intern! Morgan is a rising senior at Arkansas State University (ASU), majoring in history. Morgan previously worked at the ASU Museum.

One of the projects that she’ll be working on is rehousing the Barney Sellers photography collection, an extensive print and photographic negative collection that she’ll transfer to archival quality folders so that they can be enjoyed by patrons. In addition to processing and photographic materials handling, Morgan will also work and learn about digitization, metadata and the use of archival software.

The summer 2018 internship is made possible by the Lawrence County Historical Society and materials for the project are sponsored by the Arkansas Natural and Cultural Resources Council.

For current students who are interested in history, preservation or a related field, NEARA offers year-round internships. For more information about the program for the upcoming fall semester, please contact NEARA: or 870.878.6521.
