Alaska State Library: Summer Internships 2019!

Alaska State Library:  summer internships

The Alaska State Library is accepting applications for two summer internships in public libraries. Interns will receive travel reimbursement, per diem ($60/day for 50 days), a honorarium and free housing during the eight-week internship.

The Alaska State Library Internship Project is a grant funded project that will bring two 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 2019. 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 graduates and increase the number of MLIS graduates applying for jobs in Alaska. Application period will close February 16, 2019.
