The Queens College Libraries offer a very limited number of unpaid internships during Fall and Spring semesters to graduate students enrolled in Library and Information Science programs.
To receive academic credit, all prospective student candidates should seek approval from their graduate departments prior to applying for the internship positions.

The Benjamin Rosenthal Library invites applications for the following two academic library internships available during the Fall 2013 semester:
