Smithsonian Libraries and Archives is excited to announce their new round of internships for Summer 2022.  Please help spread the word about these programs. These opportunities provide hands-on experience in a range of subject areas and are open to both undergraduate and graduate students. Each unique project offers a chance to explore current topics in archives, libraries, and information science and learn from experienced Smithsonian Libraries and Archives staff.

Most are virtual/remote opportunities, but one project includes on-site work in our American Art and Portrait Gallery Library. All include a stipend. The application deadline is February 13th, 2022.

Programs include:

  • Education: For students interested in museum education or similar fields, this intern will assist in creating educational resources from our collections.
  • Kathryn Turner Diversity and Technology Internship: A special opportunity for students attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
  • Professional Development: For a current MSLIS student or recent grad, experience evaluating and working with Library of Congress Subject Headings.
  • Summer Scholars: Three projects for both undergraduates and grad students, including opportunities to work with art and artists files, web and social media archiving, and oral histories.
