By Musselman Library

Every year Musselman Library offers two paid internships to two Gettysburg College students during the spring semester. These are great opportunities for students who are considering a career in libraries, information science, archives, or museums. The internships are available in two Musselman Library departments: Research & Instruction and Special Collections & College Archives.

The Research & Instruction Intern will:

Help people sort through information to find exactly what they are looking for, while gaining real-world experience in librarianship and information science before applying to graduate school. This position is open to all majors.

The Special Collections & College Archives Intern will:

Learn how to care for historic documents, photographs, and artifacts, and process a collection, complete with creating a finding aid for researchers. This position is also open to all majors.

Both internships involve six to eight hours/week ($8.50/hour) during the Spring 2018 semester. The deadline for applications is Friday, November 10th. If you have any questions, please contact Mallory Jallas at for the Research & Instruction position or Amy Lucadamo at for the Special Collections & College Archives position.

If you would like to learn more about library internships, stop by the library’s CUB Table on Monday, November 6th, 11:00-1:00 p.m.
