The Smithsonian Libraries is currently recruiting for seven fall internship projects in all areas of the Libraries. All are unique learning experiences with mentorship and guidance. They are open to grad students, recent graduates and some are open to undergrad students.
These are generally part time, unpaid positions and we are happy to work with universities to help students obtain credit. A few of the projects also have flexible timing, so if an eligible student were particularly interested in joining us in the spring that may be possible.
- Interlibrary Loan
- Reference review and care of special collections
- Biodiversity Heritage Library marketing
- Biodiversity Heritage Library copyright issues
- Graphic design
- Botany and Horticulture Floras
Detailed information about each project may be found here: https://library.si.edu/internships
