Smithsonian Institution Libraries Internships
The Smithsonian Institution Libraries offers internship opportunities to graduate students, library professionals, and undergraduate students interested in exploring a library career in library and information science. Intern assignments may include a project or a structured practical experience. The Libraries selects interns based on its needs and on the specific education, training, skills, and interest of the applicant. While specific requirements may vary from project to project, a graduate student in library and information science, or an intern with library experience or subject expertise may participate in reference or interlibrary loan activities, creation of bibliographies, or cataloging projects. Undergraduate interns receive an overview of library functions such as reference, circulation, acquisitions, cataloging, or preservation, and may assist in organizing collections, processing gift and exchange materials, or proofing and keying data.
Internships are available in all of the Libraries' divisions: Readers Services and Strategic Planning with its 22 branch libraries, Technical Services and Administration, and Digital Library and Information Systems.
