The Kansas City Public Library welcomes talented graduate students to apply for digital history internships at the library for the Summer 2014 semester.

Opportunities exist for students to work in the following areas:
- Creating K-12 lesson plans and curricular materials based on the site (Honorariums exist for lesson plan creation);
- Content development;
- Designing or creating an RFP for a mobile history app;
- Creating online versions of our local history exhibits; or
- Metadata, digitization, and curation through the library’s content management system.
