One time contract work (1)

AAIR is looking for someone knowledgeable in integrating MS Access with websites. We need to make a few changes to our search engines (queries to our online database) and add a search feature for several new databases of our USN data.


Volunteer Positions (3)

1) Volunteer Indexer
AAIR is looking for volunteers to assist with the databases. While these databases already contain tens of thousands of records, they are far from complete! We need volunteers to assist by going through the microfilm and entering the information into a spreadsheet. To assist, volunteers must have Excel and a microfilm or fiche viewer which can be found on eBay for about $25.

2) Web Master
AAIR is looking for someone who would be willing to make regular updates and changes to the web site on a volunteer basis.

3) Office Assistant
AAIR is always interested in hearing from anyone willing to help out in the office. From organizing reports to scanning and filing photos, there is always something that needs to be done.
