    Original Libertarian Party Statement of Principles, June 1972

    The Libertarian National Committee is seeking winter interns to work with its Historical Preservation Committee. Positions are available for in-person experience (weekends, just outside of Denver Colorado) or remotely from anywhere with a good internet connection. Interns would be expected to put in at least 5 hours a week and would be directly supervised by the Chair of the Libertarian Party Historical Committee out of Colorado. This is an unpaid position for work experience or credits (if granted by your school).

    The mission of the Historical Preservation Committee is to document, preserve, and catalog the history and historical documents of the Libertarian Party. Interns can get experience in the following areas: historical research, archiving, wiki-and e-archive management, clerical organization, political organizing and theory, fund-raising, and a background of many aspects of third-party political administration. There will be no errand-running or other "gopher" work but hands-on political historical preservation. If working remotely some mailing may be required.

    Helpful qualifications:

    • Wikimedia and wikitext mark-up (but these can be taught)
    • Access to a high-quality scanner (300dpi minimum, color preferred)
    • Interest in Libertarian politics or history

    Necessary qualifications:

    • Attention to detail
    • Ability to follow directions without constant supervision
    • Transportation (if working on-site in Parker,Colorado)
    • Reliable fast internet connection and computer (if working remotely)

    This is a great opportunity that cuts across many disciplines including document analysis and management, political science and marketing, and historical studies.
