You can gain valuable real-world experience by interning in a variety of settings, including libraries, museums, archives, galleries, corporations, and non-profit organizations.

Internships are for credit only and must be completed under the supervision of a professional and credentialed librarian. The number of credits awarded for the internship can vary from one to three, depending on your program of study and the host site’s requirements.
