Come work with the best – intern at the Dwight Marvin Library at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy, NY.
Community colleges provide a great place for students to begin their course work in a specific career for immediate entry into the work force or to prepare for transfer to a four-year institution. It’s also a great place for grad students in information science to get experience working in a busy, academic environment. The Dwight Marvin Library has the EBSCO Discovery service, 70+ databases, 24/7 online chat service, including text a librarian plus much more. Information seeking skills learned at HVCC are transferable to other SUNY colleges and universities since databases and resources are similar across SUNY.
In Spring 2018, join the 10 full and part-time faculty librarians at the Dwight Marvin Library. All librarians at HVCC are active in professional development and outreach. Experience what is involved in library liaison work. Practice the reference interview again and again at this busy, student-centered library. Get experience with classroom library instruction through observation and teaching. Gain understanding and practice in collection development using specific selection tools.
The Dwight Marvin Library has one (1) graduate student internship available for the Spring 2018 semester. Applicants must be completing a credit granting capstone internship, in the final semester of graduate school and have taken a reference class and/or an information literacy class.
Internship is unpaid. If you are interested, please send your resume and cover letter to Cynthia L. Koman, HVCC Faculty Librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 15, 2017.
