San Francisco Planning Department (CPC)

Public Service Trainee - Records Digitization Project
3 Month Temporary Project

Salary: $27.025/Hour

Application Deadline:  Friday, June 28, 2019 at 5:00 pm PDT



Several years ago, the San Francisco Planning Department initiated a records digitization project.  The purpose of the digitization effort was to reduce the physical space paper records occupied, make documents electronically available to staff and the public, link project/entitlement documents to records in the Department’s permit tracking system and reduce the need for records to be obtained through the public information request process.

To date, most of the Department’s building permit and entitlement case files have been digitized, along with a great deal of property-related background documentation. However, the Department still has a large quantity of historic documents, including photos and maps that have not been digitized. These documents take a wide variety of forms, ranging from microfiche to large-format photographic prints. We are currently in the process of inventorying those documents.

The selected candidate will be responsible for completing the cataloguing of these files; researching and preparing recommendations for the best methods for digitizing them; and identifying those documents that need to be preserved along with the best methods for doing so. This position may also involve the actual preparation, preservation, and/or digitization of certain documents depending on the time available.

The ideal candidate should possess an education and background in historic document preservation, library science or other education and background that would prepare him/her to successfully complete the responsibilities identified above.



Requires completion of three years (equivalent to 90 semester units or 120 quarter units) of education from an accredited college or university leading to a Bachelor’s Degree in Planning, Architecture, Urban Studies, or a related field specific to the internship.



--Library Science, Library Information Technology student or degree preferred

--Computer competency

--Excellent organizational and communication skills

--Ability to lift and carry up to 25-30 pounds
