Collections Manager/Archivist – Makawao History Museum

The Collections Manager/Archivist will be responsible for setting up an inventory system for the museum collection, completing an inventory, and establishing a protocol for continued use.   Part of the inventory will include evaluating each item and recommending preservation procedures.   Funding is available for 50 hours a month for 6 months.  Scheduling is flexible.  Another Maui non-profit is also interested in hiring such an individual, so full-time employment is possible. 

The individual we are seeking would having a good working knowledge of conservation methods and procedures and be proficient in collections management software.  Ideally he/she would have a degree in art, history, or other field of the humanities, or museum studies, library/information studies.  A knowledge of Hawaiian history, particularly Maui history, is desirable.
