Internships and School Projects

The Library offers opportunities for internships and school projects. We can accommodate Capstone and other internships, and individuals doing class projects. While these are primarily for library school students, other undergraduate and graduate internships and projects will be considered. Examples include:

  •  Statistical analyses
  •  Pilot project development and testing
  •  Cataloging and/or indexing genealogical and reference materials
  •  Collection analyses
  •  Student-designed projects
