Internship - Library of Congress

The Library of Congress Junior Fellows Summer Intern program (10 weeks) provides a competitive selection of undergraduate and graduate students’ insights into the environment, culture, and collections of the world's largest and most comprehensive repository of human knowledge. Through the Junior Fellows program, the Library of Congress furthers its mission to provide access to a universal record of human knowledge and creativity as exemplified by its collections, while supporting current and future generations of students and scholars. The interns inventory, catalog, arrange, preserve and research a backlog of copyright or special collections in many different formats in various divisions. Near the end of their time at the Library, the interns join together to present a one-day exhibit of the rarest, most historically significant, and compelling gems they have discovered during the course of their work. This group celebration of their internship and the important finds they have brought to light from the Library’s collections is open to members of Congress, Library staff, the press and is always an eagerly anticipated event.
