    The U.S. Navy Experimental Diving Unit (NEDU) is located in Panama City, Florida. NEDU's mission is to conduct manned, unmanned, and biomedical research. Research includes developing, testing, diving, and evaluating hyperbaric conditions,  life support technologies, and submersible systems.  In addition, NEDU ensures all diving equipment and procedures meet the safety standards and operational requirements to expand the U.S. Navy's advantage during any undersea military operation. NEDU is equipped with the United State's largest research hyperbaric chamber complex for wet and dry hyperbaric/diving operations, a 55,000 gallon test pool, state-of-the-art physiological research facilities, and the CAPT Edward T. Flynn, Jr. Science Library. For further information, please visit     

    What will I be doing?   

    The Navy Experimental Diving Unit (NEDU) is seeking recent graduates, including early and second career librarians, interested in processing an archival collection from cradle to grave. The CAPT Edward T. Flynn, Jr. Archive is a collection consisting of articles, reports, books, and papers that represent a 52 year career in U.S. Navy diving and medicine research. The goal of this project is make important research material in the field of hyperbaric medicine and diving discoverable for researchers at NEDU and beyond. The archive is in accession stage. The primary objective is to process and describe the archive using DACS. Additionally, once the material is processed and described it will be added to a digital repository. Under the guidance of a mentor, you will participate in a one-year fellowship that fosters the development of archiving project management, archive processing and description, communication and promotion of archives, collaboration, digital collection management, and leadership.   

    As a participant you will gain experience in:   

    • Process archival material   
    • Describe an archive   
    • Create metadata based on DCMI   
    • Work with digital creation hardware and software   
    • Collaborate with library staff and researchers   
    • Participate in communities of practice with other Navy Librarians   
    • Develop archiving assessment and recommendation skills   
    • Attend virtual lectures and training   
    • Contribute to or publish scholarly communications about the archive and project
