Getting the Most out of Student Interns and Volunteers Workshop
A 90-minute workshop, Wednesday, December 4, 2019, 2:30pm Eastern/1:30 Central/12:30 Mountain/11:30am Pacific

Student interns from Master’s in Library and Information Science or similar programs can be a huge asset for libraries of all sorts, and the on-the-job experience is invaluable for those students. But we want to ensure that it’s a valuable experience for the library as well. 

In this new workshop, Sonia Archer-Capuzzo and Kristi Bergland take you through the process of bringing interns into your library, from recruiting and identifying candidates to designing a program assessing your experience. To take full advantage of the skills and perspectives these students bring, site supervisors need to be prepared to mentor their interns—this webinar helps ensure that you get the most out of the experience.

By participating in this workshop you will:

  • Develop strategies to recruit students for internships or volunteer work.
  • Learn how to identify candidates who will fit your needs and culture.
  • Learn how to design a rewarding internship.
