About volunteering at TFAO

Traditional Fine Arts Organization's (TFAO) Digital Library and its publication Resource Library welcome volunteers to further the broadening of knowledge of American representational art. College interns are also welcome.

When you become a virtual volunteer you can help TFAO any time and anywhere. Projects are completed off-site in residences of volunteers or at other locations where access to the Internet and/or OCR scanning equipment are available.

Virtual volunteering is suited for individuals studying library science, art history and and others who enjoy research in order to expand and make more readily available knowledge of American fine arts. Interns and volunteers choose their own hours. We are proud to acknowledge our volunteers' efforts in published texts. Project-related out-of-pocket expenses are reimbursable.
