NYS TESOL Seeking a Volunteer Indexer for Idiom (the professional newsletter of NYS TESOL)


New York State Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (NYS TESOL) is an association of professionals concerned with the education of English language learners at all levels of public and private education in New York State. Our interests include classroom practices, research, program and curriculum development, employment, funding, and legislation.

NYS TESOL seeks a summer volunteer intern to work on a indexing project that involves cataloguing the last 40 years of articles from its professional printed newsletter, Idiom.

Idiom is currently a member’s only newsletter, containing approximately 20-25 articles per issue, and is circulated 4 times per year.

Purpose: The purpose of this indexing project is to make articles discoverable and accessible by the public. In addition, the indexing part of this project should provide important metadata for the current editor of Idiom so they can locate previous article titles, their prospective authors, volumes, issues, dates, and specific page numbers.

The successful candidate will build lists of searchable subject terms and provide descriptive cataloguing for all Idiom articles.


The successful candidate will index each article by:

1.    Identifying the index terms (title, author, subject, etc) of each article

2.    Descriptive cataloguing of each article record

3.    Cross reference material using USE, USE INSTEAD, USE FOR

4.    Create an authority list of author headings

5.    Using specialised web-based database software (provided) to make the records searchable

A NYS TESOL staff member will be scanning the articles at the same time so working in conjunction with this person will be a large part of this project. The full text articles will be made available on the member’s only web site, while the database records will be made publicly available for searching.


NYS TESOL seeks a candidate, preferably an MLIS student, who is interested in cataloguing and classification. The successful candidate should be familiar with using  the Library of Congress Subject Headings (http://id.loc.gov/authorities/subjects.html) and descriptive cataloguing methods. The candidate should also be comfortable using database management systems. The candidate should be creative, curious, flexible, and innovative.

The project should last approximately 12 weeks (or longer) and involves cataloguing approximately 3200 articles from past issues of Idiom. The hours are flexible and may be conducted at home, or at Teachers College, Columbia University. The successful candidate must be familiar with using spreadsheets such as Microsoft Excel, Database management software, and must be comfortable with subject analysis and evaluation.

Preferred Qualifications: Candidates who have a background in TESOL are preferred but not required. Candidates who understand TESOL terminology, and who are familiar with the issues concerning the teaching of English Language Learners will be given preference.

Contact: Interested candidates may submit their resume and cover letter to Sarah Elia, 2016 NYS TESOL President at pres@nystesol.org
