Do you know someone who’s looking for library related internships or someone who might just enjoy the experience of a Volunteer Internship in NLM’s History of Medicine Division?  If yes, make sure to pass on this information.  “The HMD volunteer internship program offers practical, hands-on and results-oriented experience in the largest medical library in the world with one of the finest history of medicine collections.  Under the direct supervision of permanent library staff, selected interns will undertake projects, or a combination of projects based on their interests, skills, and the needs of the History of Medicine Division.”

Internships are offered in seven areas: Archival Arrangement and Description, Cataloging and Bibliography, Collection Management, Digitization initiatives, Preservation, Web Development and Exhibitions, Public Programs, and Outreach. Interns working in the last area have done work “ranging from researching exhibition materials and fact checking, drafting education materials, conducting market research for an outreach, and providing guided exhibition tours.”
