Currently volunteers are needed to assist the research library staff with organizing its collections. Volunteers will help the research library staff identify, select, and arrange a variety of historic materials including books, correspondence, reports, audio and video recordings, maps, photographs, and other documents, from the archives. Individuals with a knowledge of 20th Century American history, particularly diplomatic and military history, and/or basic archives principles and practices are especially desirable.
