Are you a student looking for valuable, hands-on experience with an innovative digital humanities project? In regular classes, if you write a paper for your professor, your work doesn’t usually see the light of day. A digital exhibit, however, showcases your work and is accessible around the world.
RICHES Mosaic Interface™ is a teaching tool, a searchable database of central Florida artifacts, a visualization tool for results data, and an innovative way to analyze search data. Our internships, volunteer opportunities, and class projects give students a chance to gain integral real-world experience. Students can get involved with the database in several different ways, choose whatever works best for you!
- Volunteer. Do you have a digital humanities project that you think RICHES Mosaic Interface™ could work with you on? Are you looking for an innovative opportunity that could lead to a thesis proposal, conference paper, or a future career? Email RICHES™ today to set up an interview appointment
- Intern. Are you a current university student looking for a unique opportunity for college credit? Our interns get relevant and engaging experience working on education, digitization, and preservation projects. Email Dr. Connie Lester, head of the project, to discuss internship possibilities. If you are a University of Central Florida student, visit the internship page to learn what our qualifications are and what steps you need to take.

- Do a class project. If you are in a public history class, this may be an option for you, particularly if you are required to create a digital history project. Talk to your professor about this possibility. Students working in a class can create a digital exhibit, conduct research on the interface, and contribute documents or artifacts from museums or their own collection.
