Volunteers and Interns help in many areas of the Museum & Library:

  • Special Collections and Digital Lab

The Special Collections and Digital Lab features a wide range of fascinating military artifacts, including uniforms, letters, medals, and photographs. Translation skills, educational experience, or previous experience in the field may be necessary for projects in this department. Projects with this department might require work at a remote facility on the north side.
