Kona Historical Society Photograph Collection Digitization and Public Access Project

The creation of a Collections Assistant position to increase the collections department’s capacity to catalog, digitize, house, and store a photograph collection documenting Hawaiian local history that is not currently accessible to the public. 

The Kona Historical Society (KHS) seeks to hire a Collections Assistant to support the work of the Collections Manager; doing the work of cataloging, digitizing, housing, and storing the Society’s photograph collection and making the collection safely accessible to the public through online initiatives. The KHS photo collection is back logged and in need of processing and digitizing. Hiring a Collections Assistant to focus specifically on the photo collection portion of the archives would enable KHS to move forward in making photographs accessible and searchable for the public and researchers of Kona history.
