Providence Bureau Position Posting

Listed on the Society of American Archivists website April 2013 and mailed to the attention of several candidates for recruitment. This listing sparked the Glastenbury investigation from May - August 2013 that lead to production of "Strange Far Places"
The Providence Bureau seeks candidate for innovative hybrid Junior Project Archivist / Field Research / Documentarian position in a three phase, three-month special project outside the academic mainstream.

Background in archival science, journalism, anthropology preferred.

Project Phase One: You will be responsible for assisting with processing the Glastenbury Records, a large backlog collection housed at the Special Collections department of the Providence Bureau.

This collection of approximately 100 cubic feet documents three hundred years of oral and recorded history in the towns and abandoned villages surrounding Glastenbury Mountain in Southern Vermont, with a focus on numerous reports of anomalous events, unsolved disappearances, and unusual crimes.

You will also complete a small audio digitization project of cornerstone documents from the processed collection.

This phase is based at the Providence Bureau Library Service Center in Providence Rhode Island.

Phase Two: You will travel to Southern Vermont with an associate to discover, investigate, interview, document, and process field reports based on new leads from your work with the Glastenbury Records, as well as previous leads opened by past Bureau investigations.
