Library of Congress to Offer Junior Fellows Summer Internships


Now in its 10th year, the Library's Junior Fellows Summer Internship Program
once again is offering special 10-week paid fellowships to college students.


For a stipend of $3,000, the 2014 class of Junior Fellows will work
full-time with Library specialists and curators from May 27 through Aug. 1,
2014, to inventory, describe and explore collection holdings and to assist
with digital-preservation outreach activities throughout the Library. The
focus of the program is on increasing access to collections and awareness of
the Library's digital-preservation programs by making them better-known and
available to Members of Congress, scholars, researchers, students, teachers
and the general public.


The fellows will be exposed to a broad spectrum of library work: copyright
deposits, digital preservation, reference, access standards and information
management.  From 15th-century German woodcuts and Civil War battlefield
maps to Abraham Lincoln's life mask and a braille copy of the book "Harry
Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" published in 2003, rare and unique
treasures were processed by the 2013 Junior Fellows, who were given access
to a wide variety of collections housed in the Library of Congress.


The program is made possible through the generosity of the late Mrs.
Jefferson Patterson and the James Madison Council, the Library's
private-sector advisory group.


In addition to the stipend (paid in bi-weekly segments), fellows will be
eligible to take part in programs offered at the Library.


Applications will be accepted online only at usajobs.gov, keyword:
357481100, from Monday, Dec. 16, 2013, through midnight, Friday, Jan. 24,


For more details about the program and information on how to apply, visit
www.loc.gov/hr/jrfellows/. Questions about the program may be sent to
interns2014 at loc.gov.


The Library of Congress is an equal-opportunity employer. Women, minorities
and persons with disabilities who meet eligibility requirements are strongly
encouraged to apply.


Founded in 1800, the Library of Congress is the nation's oldest federal
cultural institution. The Library seeks to spark imagination and creativity
and to further human understanding and wisdom by providing access to
knowledge through its magnificent collections, programs, publications and
exhibitions. Many of the Library's rich resources can be accessed through
its website at www.loc.gov.
