In support of Fort Ticonderoga’s commitment to preserve
and educate, an Institute of Museum and Library Services: Museums For America (IMLS:MFA)-
funded cataloger will inventory Native American collections housed around the museum campus.
Participation in community meetings with Native Tribes is expected as museum staff work
collaboratively with Tribal representatives to improve documentation across 28,600 Native
artifacts and 3,155 NAGPRA belongings. This staff member will work under the direction of the
Collections Manager and Registrar/Site Archaeologist to identify, photograph, rehouse if
necessary, and catalog thousands of objects in varying conditions from the 18th through 20th
centuries. Additionally, the Cataloger must research across a century of institutional data to be
able to connect physical artifacts with any associated documentation. To facilitate this, additional
digitizing of institutional documents may be required.
This is a full-time, salaried, temporary, one-year position that includes Fort Ticonderoga’s
benefits package. Salary is $39,000.
