Applications are now open for summer internships at the Utah State Archives and Records Service! These competitive, stipend-paid internships are designed especially for students. Read more about our three internship opportunities:

Reference Internship

  • Work with our Reference Team to help answer research questions from the public! This in-person internship works directly with our Reference & Access Program Manager to learn how to locate records in our collection and provide excellent customer service through direct contact with patrons. Additional projects include updating and creating new research guides, authoring guest blog posts, and working with state agencies and their records. 

Local Government Records Accessioning Internship (x2)

  • Spend the summer with the Local Government team! This in-person internship consists of working with staff in accessioning newly acquired historical records into the Archives permanent collection. You’ll have the opportunity to learn the accessioning framework applied at the State Archives and gain hands-on experience in identifying, organizing, inventorying, housing, and describing a variety of records from local governments in Utah.
