They have an interesting Native American collection at Clyde too. I wonder if they have that digitized?
Elyssa Ford
22:36
@Sara - interesting - I haven't heard about that
Sara Wilson
25:20
We use Otava for a cloud service and have been able to set our employees and volunteers up so they can gain access from home. This has been transformative to allowing us to work from home.
Victoria Cosner
29:05
I have an ongoing list of things I have always wanted to have staff do, but don't have time.
Sara Wilson
30:58
Will students be required to do virtual internships this summer even if the quarantine is lifted?
Linda Endersby
31:50
Our summer interns will start remote. Our hope is that it will transition at some point to at least some on-site work, but we aren't guaranteeing that.
Victoria Cosner
32:57
That is what I am considering for my summer intern
Linda Endersby
33:46
Has anyone had Zoom staff meetings and included interns in that to get them some "professional" connections/knowledge?
Linda Endersby
33:55
Remote interns, I mean.
Sara Wilson
35:10
If I has interns right now, I would require them to attend virtual staff meetings.
Sara Wilson
35:26
We don't currently have any.
Christina Miller
36:45
We won't have interns if they aren't in house. We really don't have work that we would be willing to have interns do remotely.
Linda Endersby
40:59
Elyssa, any chance you can share that list of resources for the students? Or is it online somewhere from State Archives?
Sara Wilson
44:21
We will have to decrease the diversity internship program through MAMA this year.
Sara Wilson
44:33
We will only be able to offer four paid internships.
Jamie Henry
44:35
I've been thinking a lot about digitizing photos
Sara Wilson
45:01
And we have had a lot of people reach out to us.
Sara Wilson
46:22
I would love to have an intern that can help set up, organize, and host the "Show Me Missouri Museums and Archives" virtual program.
Elyssa Ford
46:45
@Sara - that sounds like a great idea
Sara Wilson
47:16
I think it would be a good project for someone who is interested in educational programming.
Elyssa Ford
47:27
@Sara - yes definitely
Sara Wilson
52:09
I think that this is a great opportunity for museums that perhaps are not close to universities to support internships when normally they would have trouble attracting interns.
Sara Wilson
53:46
I think museum sites should submit virtual internship projects that we could advertise to students.
Sara Wilson
55:20
I also have a student who is looking for a virtual internship to tell LGBTQ history in Missouri and I think this would be a worthy project.
Elyssa Ford
56:02
@Sara - Yes that would be great. And maybe students could also post on there if they are interested in internships?
Linda Endersby

Sara Wilson
59:48
I like the idea of connecting sites to interns through MAMA. I would have to think about the technology.
Elyssa Ford
01:00:06
Even just a google doc/sheet like from AAM would be great
Elyssa Ford
01:00:36
and then we can have the link editable (maybe) on the website and re-post it once a week on the FB page
Jon Taylor
01:00:37
A MAMA spreadsheet would be helpful.
Sara Wilson
01:01:20
That is a neat idea.
Tiffany Mims-Thomas
01:01:47
That is a good idea for interns to meet during their internships
Jamie Henry
01:01:56
Linda
Jamie Henry
01:02:09
could we do a google form? So we have the template that autofills the spreadsheet?
Sara Wilson
01:02:09
It would also be great to have interns present in a Zoom about their internships.
Elyssa Ford
01:03:17
Jamie - would that be easier than having sites just fill in the excel sheet?
Elyssa Ford
01:03:55
with the forms, we would still have to regularly post an updated google sheet - with the sheet, people can just manage it themselves
Linda Endersby
01:05:02
This is a shorter link for the list of remote internships that AAM Museum Studies is putting together. https://forms.gle/8Njyj975E4mx3qci9
Jamie Henry
01:05:20
I don't think we would. The form would autofill into a sheet. If we shared the sheet with people, they would get updated versions when they access it
Linda Endersby
01:06:01
IF YOU ARE A STUDENT LOOKING FOR AN INTERNSHIP, please review: https://tinyurl.com/wlwwnpp
Linda Endersby
01:06:26
Yes, we can do a Google Form easily enough.
Sara Wilson
01:07:30
I love having interns and when making hiring decisions, I look at my intern pool first.
Sara Wilson
01:08:08
But Brenna's statement just made me realize we should add internship opportunities to our website.
Elyssa Ford
01:08:32
@Sara - definitely!! That always makes places feel more open to students.
Cindy Daffron
01:10:33
Would like to discuss our experience with interns. Cindy
Sara Wilson
01:12:43
I agree, interns can really surprise you! Sometimes I learn more from them.
Tiffany Mims-Thomas
01:13:04
Cindy that is awesome that your interns went above and beyond and turned out so well.
Sara Wilson
01:14:22
Congrats Elenore!
T Strat

At the Missouri Historical Society we have a Volunteer Intern Manager who is the person who makes sure the intern has an orientation, and the person to go to if the intern has any questions or concerns.

On-line exhibits, virtual tours, Zoom programs...
Sara Wilson
01:17:45
There are a lot of virtual options for interns.
Sonia Smith
01:17:48
Sarah Bader-King has volunteered to do a tutorial to show folks how it's done.
Jon Taylor
01:17:50
Thank you!
Sara Wilson
01:23:25
I have to run. Have a 3:00 appointment. Thanks!
