Library of Congress Junior Fellows

Applications are due by March 31, 2009, for those interested in being a Library of Congress Junior Fellow this summer.

The Library of Congress Junior Fellows Summer Intern program offers undergraduate and graduate students insights into the environment and culture of
the world's largest and most comprehensive repository of human knowledge.
Working with the staff, curators, and the incomparable collections of the Library of Congress, interns will be exposed to a broad spectrum of library work: preservation, reference, access standards, information management, the U. S. copyright system and gift collections.

No previous experience is necessary, but internships are competitive and special relevant skills are desirable. Selection will be based on academic achievement, letters of recommendation, and in most cases an interview with a selection official.
