Volunteer or Intern at the Library

The OHSU Library occasionally needs volunteers for special projects.

Internship opportunities may also be available for library school and library assistant students.  

Duties may include: working with the public, digital projects, document management related to ongoing projects; working on special inventory or cataloging projects or processing archival materials.  

Eligibility: We are seeking applicants who have the ability to work independently, clearly communicate verbally and in writing, work proficiently with Microsoft Office and online search tools, and show enthusiasm about libraries.  

Applicants must be over the age of 18 and must be either currently enrolled in college, or have a Bachelor’s degree or the equivalent. Preference will be given to students with previous library experience.  

Commitment: Due to the library’s investment in training, volunteers are required to commit 10-20 hours per week for at least 1 year. There is some flexibility in scheduling upon request.  

Interested? Please apply by sending a CV and cover letter explaining your interest in joining the OHSU Library to Tracy Thornton, .
