Be a Library Intern at Transylvania University!
Transy Library welcomes inquiries from individuals interested in
volunteering their time in service of the Library during the Fall 2012
semester. Volunteers will be expected to work independently, with
minimal supervision, primarily in public services. This is a perfect

academic library setting and a great way to augment resumes. Interns
can be awarded course credit in LIS 675.
Prospective interns should enjoy interacting with the public and be able
to make a semester long commitment to a weekly schedule. Making
internships available supports our commitment to encouraging emerging
professionals in the library field by providing professional growth and
development opportunities. The intern experience offers exposure to new
learning opportunities as well as hands-on experience in an academic
library at a small liberal arts institution. Additionally, this is an
excellent opportunity for the intern to form a relationship with a
seasoned professional who can mentor them as they complete coursework or
search for a job.
