CERL will benefit because STCN-titles will eventually be inserted ​in the [[http://​gso.gbv.de/​DB=1.77/​LNG=EN/​|Heritage ​of the Printed Book database]].\\+The Royal Library of The Hague (KB) preserves more than 2.200 incunabula; 900 from the Low Countries. All incunabula are described in the OPAC using OCLC (http://opc4.kb.nl/PPN?​PPN=325839700)Descriptions ​are based on ISTCAll desctiptions ​ contain ​the ISTC number ​in a separate fieldand the GW number  ​in the bibliographical field together with other bibliographical referencesAll provenances are researched and describedA number ​of incunabula were included in the Illustrated ISTC with their keypages.\\

 +2. Expand the descriptions with data required by MEI (geographical and chronological markers).\\
  
-All early printed editions ​of the KB have been described in our online library catalogue, but some have slipped through. ​The intern shall search ​for uncatalogued early editions in the KB and catalogue these for the library catalogue and – if needed – in the Short-Title Catalogue Netherlands.+The Royal Library ​of The Hague has much experience with internships. Interns that are enrolled at a university can apply for the internship compensation (KB) on top of the CERL grant. Interns will be part of the organization.

-__Horace Walpole’s Library__: Adding Provenance Data to British Library Catalogue Records\\+**APPLICATION PROCEDURE**
  
-Working closely with Hazen’s “Catalogue of Horace Walpole’s Library” ​(London, 1969we would like the librarian or scholar to identify all of the Strawberry Hill books (and possibly manuscripts) that are now in the British Library collections with the aim of creating ​finding aid. The collection of Horace Walpole (1717-1797) was wide and varied, so the work will entail working with items printed across Europe and in different formats. We envisage the intern finding the books in our catalogue, calling them up and describing condition, binding, any/all Walpole identifiers,​ annotations etc. This will prove really useful ​for curators and Walpole researchers in the future.\\ +Your application should include a CV (maximum two pages) and a covering letter. This should outline your suitability ​for the internshipgive your reasons ​for the applicationand the name of one referee who can be contacted by CERL.\\

-__Cataloguing 19th Century Printed Items Contained within the Lord Chamberlain’s Plays Collection__\\ +
- +
-A significant number of printed items are located throughout the Lord Chamberlain’s Plays collection (playscripts1737-1968). Many of the items are unique having, in some cases, been printed ​for the purpose of submission to the Lord Chamberlain’s Office. This project entails examining 19th century playscripts in order to identify printed itemsrecord annotations,​ match them to existing catalogue records, or provide ​the necessary information to create new catalogue records. The benefits are considerable – greater visibility ​of the printed items would increase the use of this under-used collection and provide a greater understanding of the British Library’s printed theatrical holdings.+
