Job: Junior Fellow Summer Intern Library of Congress

The general focus of the Junior Fellows Program is on increasing access to the collections and an awareness of the Library’s copyright, legal and special collections and digital initiatives.  In the past, projects have been developed to make the collections  better known and accessible to researchers including scholars, students, teachers, knowledge creators, and the general public. Interns help the Library expose unprocessed collections, participate in digital projects, provide additional services to Congress and the public, and make our collections more immediately accessible to scholars. Interns work under the direction of Library curators and specialists in various divisions. In the past, summer interns have identified hundreds of historical, literary, artistic, cinematic and musical gems representing rich cultural, creative, and intellectual resources. United States citizens currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate school are invited to apply for consideration as a Junior Fellow.
