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.


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.

These fellowships are designed to give LIS students hands-on experience in an academic library.


Each year, Atkins librarians and staff have the opportunity to propose projects for the Fellows Program.  Applications are created for five positions and students can apply for one or more of the positions.  Interviews with selected applicants will provide an opportunity to speak with the project supervisor(s) and learn more about the position and the program.


Fellows will work on a specific project throughout the summer.  They will also have the opportunity to attend workshops, job talks, and local conferences, as well as job shadow and participate in departmental and all staff meetings.  Through this experience, Fellows will learn about the operations of an academic library, better preparing them for work opportunities in the profession.


At the end of the program, the library hosts a reception for the Fellows to present their projects.  Former Fellows have also presented their projects at state and national conferences.
