Sustainability & Clean Energy Internships & Jobs

Below are some internships and jobs from our friend Ed Carley over at Ed’s Clean Energy & Sustainability Jobs newsletter. He’s got some amazing resources all curate nicely for you and when I read about the internships they should be right up your alley (see below): environmental justice, renewables, urban tech, etc. If you aren’t subscribed to this email and you’d like to be, please sign up here: edsjobslist.com.

The first article shared is about Middlebury alum, Jamie Henn ’07, who was a co-founder and communications director of 350.org and has now launched Fossil Free Media, a nonprofit media lab dedicated to supporting the movement to end fossil fuels, which is killin’ it on calling out PR firms that are helping the fossil fuel companies survive and continue to ‘greenwash’. Check out the article in Huffington Post here: PR Firms Are Being Shamed For Helping Fossil Fuel Companies ‘Green’ Their Image (Huff Post).

Be a Part of the Discussion. Translating Climate Anxiety to Action

“Anxiety to Action: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis”

Thursday, November 12, 6-7:30pm 

Zoom link TBD

Facilitated Discussion with pre-selected questions, and live Q&A

When climate change looms large, the pandemic has no definitive end in sight, racism and racial injustices continue to compound, and everything feels overwhelming, what do you do? How do you find your way to meaningful action? Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine Wilkinson will join us virtually for a special conversation about their experiences and draw on insights from their new book, “All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis,“ a collection of essays by 60 women spanning backgrounds, approaches, and generations at the forefront of the climate movement.

Submit your discussion suggestions and questions today! 

Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson is a marine biologist, policy expert, writer, and Brooklyn native. She is founder of Urban Ocean Lab, a think tank for the future of coastal cities, and founder and CEO of Ocean Collectiv , a consulting firm for conservation solutions. Johnson is the co-host of Gimlet Media’s How to Save a Planet, co-created the Blue New Deal, and has written and presented widely on hope, strategy, and the intersections of race, racism and the climate crisis. 

Dr. Katharine Keeble Wilkinson is an author, strategist, and teacher working to heal the planet we call home. Her writings include The Drawdown Review (2020), the New York Times bestseller Drawdown (2017), and Between God & Green (2012), which The Boston Globe dubbed “a vitally important, even subversive, story.” She is a vice president at Project Drawdown, where she leads the organization’s editorial, creative, and communication work on climate solutions. She recently launched the “A Matter of Degrees” podcast.

Sustainable Development J-Term Virtual Internship

Apply to the AASD Virtual J-term Internship
Deadline: Wednesday, November 4th
The Andean Alliance for Sustainable Development (AASD) is a well-established NGO in Peru with over ten years of on-the-ground experience working in sustainable development and with experiential learning programs. In Summer 2020, we hosted our first virtual Summer Development Practicum with the intention to bring Peru to the participants and provide them with a unique virtual learning experience. We are open to providing these experiences in hopes that these programs will motivate participants to eventually come to Peru with the AASD.

Interested candidates should submit a resume and a statement of purpose to anna@alianzaandina.org.  Please limit your Statement of Purpose to 500 words total. Your Statement of Purpose should be forward looking. While it is ok to draw on past experience for examples, we prefer that past experience and qualifications come through in your resume. The following questions should be addressed. 

  • What are you hoping to get out of the AASD 2021 J-term Virtual Practicum?

You are encouraged to find your own faculty adviser to advise you in this application process. You will interview directly with AASD. Please visit the Handshake posting for more information about this J-term Internship. 

Students can learn more about applying for funding assistance through CCE’s CCCS grant application.

More issues of The Middlebury Campus digitized

New old issues of The Middlebury Campus (1981-2008), now available via the Internet Archive!

Thanks to the efforts of Middlebury’s Digital Projects & Archives Librarian, Patrick Wallace, we are happy to announce that digitized issues of The Middlebury Campus dating from 1981 to 2008 are now available via the Internet Archive (go/ia).

These “new” issues of The Campus have been added to an ever-growing (over 3,000 items!) digital collection entitled “Middlebury College Newspapers and Magazines” available on the site. In addition to digitized copies of The Campus, the collection also includes The Undergraduate (precursor to The Campus), and Middlebury Magazine.

Visit go/ia to access digitized copies of The Campus and more!

Did you know digitized materials on the Internet Archive are full-text searchable? Simply click the bubble next to “Text contents” below the search bar. We searched for ourselves and found this mention in a Campus article from March, 7, 2007:

We can’t help but agree with the author on this one.

Questions about accessing digitized materials? Email specialcollections@middlebury.edu

MIDCAT search alerts

Are you interested in receiving automatic weekly updates for new library acquisitions? The easiest way to do this is to set up a preferred search in MIDCAT and select the option to Mark for Email. This generates a weekly email listing any new materials matching your search criteria. Note that if no new materials match your search terms for a given week you won’t receive an email. You may set up multiple search alerts, as needed.

For example, to receive notice of all new Jazz CDs I would:

Log into My MIDCAT
Click on MIDCAT to search the catalog
Choose a format, like Music Recordings (in Advanced Search I may choose other parameters – like language, publication years, etc.)
Enter search term in a keyword box, e.g. Jazz
Submit search – it will bring up every Jazz item we have currently in that format
Click “Save As Preferred Search”
Go back to my “Patron Record” and click on “Preferred Searches”
Check the “Mark for Email” box

I will now receive an email notice for any new materials that match those search parameters. Check out the LIS Wiki page for more information about setting up or adjusting MIDCAT search alerts.

Tip: Want to get notifications about ALL of a particular material type (not just things matching a certain genre or keyword)? Use an asterisk (*) as your search term!  E.g. to find all DVDs (in order to set up a search alert for all new DVDs) perform an Advanced Search for Any field = * and limit to Material type = DVDs.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask me here in the comments, or to contact a Librarian at x5496 or via email at Ask-A-Librarian.
