Project Description

The Office of the Historian seeks help applying subject tags to entries of its online publication, the Administrative Timeline of the Department of State, to make entries searchable and browsable by subject. Successful internship candidates will be responsible for reviewing entries on the Timeline, and applying appropriate subject tags related to the history of the Department of State. Some experience with XML or TEI coding is beneficial, and a background or interest in history is desirable. The Administrative Timeline of the Department of State encompasses principal events concerning Department administration from 1789 through 2017, and it can be explored online at https://history.state.gov/departmenthistory/timeline.
