Smithsonian Libraries and Archives will host paid internships in Summer 2023. The integrated internship program of the Smithsonian Libraries and Archives (SLA) will provide students in library, archival, information science and related disciplines a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work with expert Libraries and Archives staff and other Smithsonian staff to acquire the latest skills, knowledge, and hands-on experience needed for today’s information and cultural heritage workplace.
Internships are typically eight weeks in length offered for summer semesters (late May through early September). Part-time options, practicums and for-credit internships may be available. Opportunities vary and are based on available programs and projects. Please see the "Current Internship Opportunities" section for complete information on Program Details, Eligibility, and Application Instructions.
