Description: The general focus of the Junior Fellows Summer Intern Program is to increase access to the collections and an awareness of the Library’s copyright, legal and special collections and digital initiatives. In the past, projects have been developed to make the collections better known and accessible to researchers including scholars, students, teachers, knowledge creators, and the general public. Interns help the Library expose unprocessed collections, participate in digital projects, provide additional services to Congress and the public, and make our collections more immediately accessible to scholars. Interns work under the direction of Library curators and specialists in various divisions. In the past, summer interns have identified hundreds of historical, literary, artistic, cinematic and musical gems representing rich cultural, creative, and intellectual resources. United States citizens currently enrolled in undergraduate or graduate school are invited to apply for consideration as a Junior Fellow.

Duties

This program offers undergraduate and graduate students insights into the environment and culture of the world’s largest and most comprehensive repository of human knowledge. Interns will be exposed to a broad spectrum of library work: copyright, preservation, reference, access standards, and information management. Interns inventory, catalog, arrange, preserve, and research a backlog of copyright or special collections in many different formats in various divisions, and assist with digital preservation outreach activities throughout the Library. Near the end of their appointment at the Library, the interns join together to present a one-day display of historically significant Library collections and information discovered through research conducted in the course of their work. The display is open to members of Congress, Library staff, and the press and is always an eagerly anticipated event.

The intern will be assigned to the ABP workforce project which includes the current longitudinal survey platform.  The following list describes in some detail the type of work that may be assigned to this individual over time.

  1. Perform a literature review of the workforce (pediatrics and pediatric focused mid-level providers) using the literature review from the University of Michigan as a starting point.
  2. Draft a list of other organization’s surveys about the pediatric physician workforce. The list would note survey content, sample, schedule of delivery/analysis/results, and separately would include sample surveys where possible.
  3. Similarly, look at other organizations’ data on the pediatric workforce such as trend data, tracking data of trainees, certification data, etc. Focus will extend to mid-level providers associated with pediatric care.
  4. In addition to categorizing other organization’s data, collect sample websites that display workforce data to help inform how the ABP may structure their workforce webpages and online analytic platform.
  5. Recheck survey tracking tables from CHEAR they are going to develop. As needed, mock-up tables for the ABP’s current surveys (recently edited in 2017) to be published on the website.
