Parliamentary Library Internship
The Parliamentary Library is launching an internship in 2014 as part of a new initiative to engage with future library professionals and foster relationships between the Parliamentary Library and Australian tertiary institutions.
The Parliamentary Library Internship program provides interns with an opportunity to develop their skills in a well-regarded Library with highly professional and experienced staff.
The successful interns will receive:
- experience working in the Australian Parliament
- interaction with relevant expert Librarians and researchers in the Parliamentary Library
- experience that can be used towards university course credit
- privileged access to the Parliamentary Library’s collections and facilities
The Internship is open to students who have commenced studying for an ALIA accredited Librarian qualification at an Australian institution. It is open to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Applicants must be Australian citizens or permanent residents.
The internship is for up to 20 days and can be undertaken one day a week for the semester, or in an intensive block. The internship is a work experience opportunity and is not remunerated.
Applications for 2014 Internships are now closed. Two Internships have been awarded for 2014. The successful applicants are:
- Laura Parsons from Charles Sturt University, and
- David Faraker from Queensland University of Technology.
Inquiries should be directed to Ms Liz Luchetti, Assistant Secretary, Information Access Branch on firstname.lastname@example.org or (02) 6277 7103.
