Hi! I'm in the process of researching graduate programs to apply to for fall 2017. I currently work in a corporate archive and I absolutely love the work I do there. Though I realize a corporate archive is different from most archives, I'm interested in archives and special collections. I've been looking into programs in Archives and Public History, Library Science, and dual degree programs at NYU (MA in Archives and Public History/MSLIS with LIU), Rutgers (MI), UMaryland (MA in History/MLS or "HiLS" program), and others. From what I've read on other Grad Cafe posts, I've noticed that many people encourage a dual-degree program. I'm very interested in the dual-degree option, but worried about expense (especially for a school like NYU, which is a school I'm very interested in), post-grad debt, program opportunities, and job prospects upon graduation. Does anyone have any helpful hints or tips about applying or researching programs? Is it more conducive to apply to an MA in Archives/Public History and MLIS dual-degree program? Or should I opt for an MA in History/MLIS dual-degree (certificate in Archives)? Or should I disregard the dual-degree altogether? Any, or all, information would be greatly appreciated!
Hello! I am applying to Public History and Archives programs for fall 2016. Where can I find some good scholarships and/or grants? Also, should I even start applying for the scholarships if I have not been accepted by the schools yet? Thanks!
Hey y'all, I've gotten a proposal accepted to contribute to a book project (humblebrag). The problem I'm having is with obtaining permission to use documents which the Bosnian archives have donated to the USHMM collection. I need their permission to make copies of the microfilm to do my research. I've tried emailing, faxing, and snail-mailing them to no avail. I suppose I can try to call them, but that would be problematic as my spoken Bosnian is poor. Does anyone have any experience/advice for dealing with issues with foreign archives? Thanks!
