The Alaska State Library is accepting applications for three summer internships in public libraries. Interns will receive travel reimbursement, a $4,000 stipend and free housing during the eight-week internship.
The grant-funded Alaska State Library Internship Project will bring three interns who have recently or are near completion of their Master’s degree in Library or Information Science to work in Alaska public libraries for two months in the summer of 2018. The goals of the project are to provide assistance to public libraries in Alaska who lack staff expertise to sustain long-term projects that would benefit their libraries and communities, provide internship and professional development opportunities to MLIS students and increase the number of MLIS students applying for jobs in Alaska. Application period will close February 15, 2018.
