    Call for project archivist:

    The Wilsonville Boones Ferry Historical Society (WBFHS) has received a grant to fund 200 hours of an archivist’s time to conduct an item-level artifact inventory, write a collections policy and make recommendations on preserving and exhibiting artifacts. Board members and two librarians with training in archival science are on-hand for questions and assistance. There are approximately 150 items with unknown provenance. Some have notes attached to them, while others are unidentified. The oldest items date from approximately 1890.

    INVENTORY the WBFHS historical artifacts collection currently stored in the attic of the Wilsonville library. Move items from shelves with assistance from volunteer Board members. Catalog the artifacts in a spreadsheet, and repackage items with appropriate archival materials. The catalog does not need to adhere to a particular standard, but does need to employ an artifact numbering system and provide a description at the item-level. Recommend further conservation steps and work with library staff as needed to include paper and other media archives

    CARE OF COLLECTION: During the inventory, identify needed archival storage supplies and purchase them within the budget provided. Mileage will be paid at the federal rate for personal transportation to pick up archival packaging if needed. Advise the WBFHS of issues needing further resolution and conservation.

    POLICY DEVELOPMENT: Using the collection policies of similar organizations, such as the Marion County Historical Society, or Tualatin Historical society, develop a written collections management plan to advise the WBFHS on maintaining the current collection and accepting future items. Advise on forms, recordkeeping, and inventory management.

    GIVING DIRECTION: Recommend how the WBFHS can use the artifacts to promote the heritage and history of our City.

    TIME FRAME: Work 200 hours between time of selection and October 31, 2018. The specific work schedule is flexible depending on library hours, board assistance and archivist’s schedule. The ending date can be adjusted if needed.

    LOCATION: Inventory at Wilsonville Library, 8200 SW Wilsonville Road, Wilsonville, OR 97070.

    SUPERVISION: The WBFHS President is the general supervisor but most work is independent.

    PAY/SCHEDULE: A stipend for $50.00 per hour will be paid each time 50 hours are completed. A written record of hours will be submitted to the President and payment will be made a week after the hours are completed. There will be four payments of $2500.000 for a total of $10,000. Archivist will submit a W-9 and be responsible for paying any income taxes.

    TO APPLY: BY July 22, send a letter of interest including personal qualifications or resume. Work samples and references are encouraged.
