SMU Libraries Internships

For Library & Information Science Graduate Students

Reference and Instruction Intern Program

The primary goal of this program is to provide future librarians with the authentic professional opportunities and support to become qualified for academic library jobs and start them on a track of leadership within the profession.

Each intern is given librarian-level opportunities in:

  • Research Support - staffing our chat service and research consultations
  • Classroom Instruction - teaching information literacy to first year writing students
  • Project work and committee assignments – in areas such as collection development, instructional design, web design and usability, Equity, Inclusion, Diversity, and Accessibility, and event planning and outreach

This is a paid internship for 15-20 hours a week. The interns are a part of a diverse team that work and learn together. Applicants must be enrolled in a graduate program in Library Science.

We are currently accepting applications. Submit your resume and cover letter to apply. For questions, contact Rebecca Graff at
