Internships and Practica in the UCB Libraries
The University of Colorado Boulder Libraries invite interested and qualified individuals to apply for internships or practica. Internships with the UCB Libraries offer the freedom and flexibility to create a practical professional experience that fits students' library interests and career goals.
Applying for an internship or practicum
Students are encouraged to contact potential internship supervisors at the library to find out about opportunities. Faculty librarians have their profiles available online, and a complete faculty and staff directory is available.
We recommend that students begin the application process the semester before they would like to begin the internship.
Requirements and credit
Applicants should be current students or recent graduates from a graduate program in library and information science. We will consider other qualified applicants on a case-by-case basis. Time, project, communication, and evaluation requirements are typically dictated by the intern's institution and it is the intern's responsibility to share these requirements with his or her UCB Libraries supervisor prior to the start of the internship. Additionally, interns and their UCB supervisors will determine scheduling, projects, and goals before the internship begins.
The Libraries will work with the graduate programs to insure academic credit is given when applicable. Currently, all internships and practica are unpaid.
