Ottawa Jewish Archives

Audio recording digitization
The archives has hundreds of audio records from obituaries to interviews that need to be digitized. The volunteer would work with audio cassettes and CD-ROMs to digitize the massive collection so these recordings are more easily accessible.


Photograph Organization and Conservation - Occupied
The OJA is in the process of reorganizing its photograph collection. The volunteer will have the opportunity to work with photographs by labelling individual photos with accession numbers, and creating protective mylar sleeves.


The OJA maintains a blog with entries written by students, volunteers and the archivist. The volunteer will have the opportunity to pick a topic and write about it. This can be anything from research into an event, object, or person, to their experience in the archives.
