CERL would like to offer one 2016/2017 Internship and Placement Grant, to the value of 1,000 Euros, to allow qualified librarians and scholars to work on CERL projects in CERL libraries, or in CERL offices, and to be trained on CERL databases, generally for a period of one month. In particular, CERL is looking to support people new to the profession, whether in librarianship or in academia, and to facilitate international mobility.

CERL asked its member libraries to propose projects suitable to the CERL Grant. Applicants may apply to these, or suggest a different proposal in agreement with another host library, which must itself be a member of CERL. The internship should take place within the period January-September 2017.

This grant can only be assigned once to the same person. Applications not selected but positively vetted will be notified that they can be put in again for the next round. A written report for the CERL webpage and Newsletter, and/or a presentation in person will be expected at the end of the internship/placement.

Internship offered by member Libraries:
The Royal Library of The Hague (KB) preserves more than 2.200 incunabula; 900 from the Low Countries. All incunabula are described in the OPAC using OCLC (here). Descriptions are based on ISTC. All desctiptions contain the ISTC number in a separate field, and the GW number in the bibliographical field together with other bibliographical references. All provenances are researched and described. A number of incunabula were included in the Illustrated ISTC with their keypages.

The internship:
1. Adapt a download of the incunable descriptions for upload in MEI according to the requirements of Data Conversion Group (DCG)
2. Expand the descriptions with data required by MEI (geographical and chronological markers)

The Royal Library of The Hague has much experience with internships. Interns that are enrolled at a university can apply for the internship compensation (KB) on top of the CERL grant. Interns will be part of the organization. The KB will provide a workplace and guidance. The internship will be coordinated by Dr Marieke van Delft, Curator Pre-1800 books at KB.

Requirements for the intern:
– knowledge of the rare books, preferably incunabula and analytical bibliography;
– knowledge of Latin, English, and if possible Dutch
– palaeographical skills

Your application should include a CV (maximum two pages) and a covering letter. This should outline your suitability for the internship, give your reasons for the application, and the name of one referee who can be contacted by CERL.

International Fellowship Programme, Berlin

GRANT: International fellowship programme for sabbatical leave and research residencies at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.

Launched in 2009, the International Fellowship Programme offers scholars from around the world the opportunity to spend one to three months on a research residency at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin.

The programme supports research projects that bear direct relation to the diverse institutions and rich collections of the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. It aims to strengthen the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin’s position within the international scholarly network and is therefore aimed specifically at foreign scholars who do not reside in Germany. The programme especially promotes young researchers.

The fellowships allow researchers to work on their project and make professional contacts at the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin. As a result, they also get to participate in the scholarly and cultural life within the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin and Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz.

Other institutions that fall under the umbrella organization of the Stiftung Preussischer Kulturbesitz (the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, the Geheime Staatsarchiv Preussischer Kulturbesitz, the Staatliche Institut für Musikforschung, and the Ibero-American Institute) all offer similar scholarship opportunities.

Deadline: 31 July 2015.
