Newberry interns benefit professionally and intellectually from challenging work assignments as well as participation in the library’s lively community of scholars. Interns are supervised individually by Newberry staff members, who serve as mentors and insure that the internship has a robust educational component. In addition to their individual assignments, interns learn about other dimensions of the Newberry through group presentations, tours, and events such as the weekly colloquium. At the colloquium, the Newberry community gathers to hear an informal talk, usually focused on the collections or a current research project within the Newberry, followed by discussion and accompanied by refreshments.

Internships may last from one month to one year, and require from seven to 35 hours per week. If you would like to be considered for more than one internship, you only need to submit one application. No phone calls please. Jobs, Internships & Volunteers. The John F.
