Internships in the Library: Library Science School Internships (Graduate Students)

MLS/MLIS Internships

The Brooklyn College Library offers a unique internship experience. We actively seek current graduate ML(I)S students to intern in various units within the Library. The intern experience is designed to give students a broad understanding of the organization and functioning of an academic library, as well as to provide the student with opportunities to serve the public in roles supported by their assigned unit. Each intern will engage in several semester-long projects that support Library goals and match interns' interests. Work on these projects is designed to provide the intern with a substantive product to show as an example of their own achievements at the Library. Interns will also have opportunities to collaborate with other librarians, attend conferences, and investigate publishing opportunities. Upon successful completion of the internship, participants will present their work to colleagues in the Library.

Any current CUNY graduate student interested in a Library internship is encouraged to apply. Current non-CUNY graduate ML(I)S students interested in applying for a Library internship must be enrolled in a credit-bearing internship course at their institution during the semester that the internship is offered.
