Pic of the Week: Interns Spend Spring Break in D.C.

Share this post:

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of welcoming three interns from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign to Washington, D.C. on their spring break.  They are graduate students pursuing a master of science degree in library and information science. These future librarians have been volunteering remotely on several different metadata projects of the Law Library since January and will continue through May.

For their spring break trip to Washington, D.C., we had tours of the Supreme Court Library, Capitol Building, and, of course, the Library of Congress! They attended presentations and meetings with many members of our staff to understand more about librarianship and what we do. They said that it was very helpful to see the physical collections and meet with staff members. It allowed them to see their projects from a broader perspective and better understand how their work was utilized.

Volunteers and interns are essential to our digitization and research work. Are you interested in volunteering or intern opportunities with the Law Library of Congress? We update our Internship Opportunities webpage as we identify needs and projects throughout the year.
