Internship — FSU Law Library (Tallahassee)



The Florida State University College of Law Research Center’s mission is to foster research and learning for the students and faculty of the College of Law. Whether we are called the law library or the law research center, one thing remains the same, we offer practical legal research instruction, an experienced and helpful staff, and an incredible array of information resources and services. As a member of the University Libraries community, we believe our primary patrons are our students and faculty. The Research Center Library Faculty consists of three librarians with professional library degrees and six dual-degreed attorney/librarians. We consult with students on research projects, provide individual “Book-A-Librarian” sessions for law firm jobs or externships, and teach for-credit legal research classes on a variety of subjects. Our experienced and helpful staff provide services such as circulation, interlibrary loan, acquisitions, and document delivery as well as creating research guides, teaching workshops, and conducting outreach events.

We are seeking someone who aspires to work as a law librarian. Law librarians work in numerous fields, including business, academia, government, courts, and law firms. The position will provide a broad experience that includes helping faculty with research, staffing the reference desk during schedule hours, preparing/teaching workshops, producing research guides, assisting with outreach events, creating social media content, and shadowing librarians in their various roles while assisting them with their tasks. Opportunities for professional development offered could include attending webinars, conferences, and participating in committee meetings. We seek to provide all of our interns with a well-rounded experience that leaves them ready to pursue a career in law librarianship.

Interested candidates should have excellent written and oral communications skills, be organized, hardworking, timely, and ready to learn. A legal education and/or experience is preferred but not required. A three (3) credit hour internship will require 10 hours of work per week. A six (6) credit hour internship will require 20 hours of work per week.
