Digital Preservation Fellow – 2.5 days/week
The New Museum seeks a Digital Preservation Fellow to perform archival processing, original research and technical documentation to expand the scope of the Museum’s Digital Archive to include interactive digital objects, and to further develop its documentation of the Museum’s new media art programs. The Museum will be the first museum to pilot the use of Rhizome’s Webrecorder tool to capture and document the dynamic web content of microsites that are part of the New Museum’s institutional history. The Fellow will also be responsible for researching the New Museum’s history of curating and promoting new media art, and will identify areas of the Digital Archive that should be better developed to represent that legacy.
