Don't have time to commit to an internship? Don't worry -- you can always volunteer! Volunteers have helped us with a lot of projects, including:
Please note that all volunteers and interns will need to go through an interview process and fill out forms prior to starting a project. You must be at least 15 years old, too. Non-Hopkins affiliates also must undergo a background check.
As you can see, working in Special Collections is tons of fun! We (including the Peabody Library) hire students to assist with many tasks, including overseeing the information and reading room desks, adding images to the department's Flickr site, and filling copy orders from rare materials. We hire students throughout the year, and advertise the positions via Student Employment Services.
We offer internships to undergraduate and graduate students. An internship can be taken for credit if part of an independent study or class requirement. The number of internships is limited. Interested in embarking on an internship? Contact Heidi Herr.
