Archival Researchers for Hire Intake Form

The William Ready Division of Archives and Research Collections maintains a public directory of current McMaster graduate students who are interested in paid opportunities to work with our collections.

Such opportunities are usually on behalf of researchers who are unable to visit our location in person. They can range from comparatively simple requests for photography in the archives to complex projects involving independent research.

The directory is erased and re-populated on a regular basis to ensure that contact information and availability remain current.

Please note that inclusion in the directory is not a guarantee of employment; it serves only as a first point of connection between interested students and paid research opportunities. Persons listed in this directory are not employees of the University Library, and all fees and services must be negotiated at an individual level. We maintain this directory only as a courtesy and cannot participate in any way in these negotiations.
