Baseball anyone?

This Press release from the National Baseball Hall of Fame (American) announces its search for interns. This morning in my AUTOCAT digest I read this particular announcement:

The National Baseball Hall of Fame invites graduate students in Library
and Information Science to apply for a Technical Services Internship.
Interns will have the opportunity to experience a technical services
environment outside of a traditional academic setting. Interns will
perform original and copy cataloging of baseball monographs,
dissertations, serials, and newsletters using OCLC and Innovative
Interfaces, Inc. system. Students may also be exposed to acquisitions,
serials management, bibliographic and authority control, and reference.

A basic cataloging class is recommended. The intern is expected to use
AACR2R, LCSH, LC Classification, and MARC21 formats.

The ten-week paid internship program begins in June and ends in August.
For a full description of the program, other internship departments and to
apply online, visit the Hall of Fame’s website, baseballhalloffame.org.
You may also submit a cover letter and resume to: Melissa Marietta,
National Baseball Hall of Fame, 25 Main St, Cooperstown, NY 13326.

The deadline is January 31, 2006.

I imagine there’ll be a lot of competition for this since most LIS students want to get as much experience they can before they graduate! (and come on, a paid internship! How rare!)
