According to NYLA, ” internships are an opportunity for students to complement the theories and methods introduced in the classroom by applying these concepts in a professional environment. Internships are great resume builders and give students the chance to explore potential careers and make key contacts in the field.”

Library Journal’s article Internships are the Appetizers of the Library World So Nibble, Nibble, Nibble… is a fantastic read for anyone interested in getting a library internship.
