Health Sciences Library Paid Internship

The Shimberg Library is advertising for currently enrolled Library Science students who are looking for reference desk experience in a health sciences library. They are opening this to as many as 3 students.

The student will:

• work at the reference desk and have the opportunity to learn the reference interview process.
• interact with students, staff, and faculty of USF Health, the professional community of the Tampa Bay area, and the general public served by the Shimberg Library.
• be trained in the use of the primary resources of the library, both online and print.
• be mentored by a professional librarian and, when working at the reference desk, will be assigned to a librarian for backup and consultation.

Hours are flexible, not to exceed 10 per week, Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 5:00pm. Previous library experience or background in the health sciences is not required. This is a paid internship, not a graduate assistantship program.

They would like to start this program in September, 2009, so apply as soon as possible.
