Our members include public library systems (large and small), academic libraries, school libraries and special libraries. As the hub of this diverse membership, we provide ongoing education, coordinate the sharing of resources, work with our members in planning and presenting both programs and events, and promote a platform for social and career networking in the Southwest Ohio library community. A student intern at SWON will work with us in all these areas gaining a real life picture of library policies, issues, operations, and work life across all areas of librarianship. In addition to working in our office, we will design the internship based on the student's interests. If a student is interested in learning more about the different kinds of librarianship, we will set up visits and introduce them to practitioners in all types of libraries. On the other hand, If a student knows they were born to be a children's librarian, we can help them connect with children's librarians across our region providing an in depth look at that area of practice.

 

Preferred skills, competencies and knowledge of student.

No particular skills, just curiosity and a willingness to learn.

 

Projected schedule (number of hours a week) or if necessary the range of dates intern is needed

Our office is open Monday - Friday from 9:00 to 5:00 year round. Occasionally, when we are involved in programs, we work extended hours. Within this time frame an intern can create his/her own schedule, set a start and end date, and determine the number of hours worked each week.

 

How to apply (including contact person/institution supervisor. Do they need a resume etc.)

Contact Gayle Ecabert, Executive Director, at gayle@swonlibraries.org
