    Responsibilities

    This program offers undergraduate and graduate students insights into the environment and culture of the world's largest and most comprehensive repository of human knowledge. Interns will be exposed to a broad spectrum of library work: copyright, preservation, reference, access standards, and information management. Interns inventory, catalog, arrange, preserve, and research a backlog of copyright or special collections in many different formats in various divisions, and assist with digital preservation outreach activities throughout the Library. Near the end of their appointment at the Library, the interns join together to present a one-day display of historically significant Library collections and information discovered through research conducted in the course of their work. The display is open to members of Congress, Library staff, and the press and is always an eagerly anticipated event.
