The Smithsonian Libraries’ Summer Internship Program includes an internship for working with artists’ books at three of the art libraries at the Smithsonian (the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the American Art Museum / National Portrait Gallery, and the National Museum of African Art). Interns will be working closely with staff from all three libraries and the Smithsonian Libraries’ internship are unique learning experiences that benefit from professional mentorship from SIL staff, as well as internship programming opportunities and events from the Libraries and the Smithsonian Institution. Please note that this internship does not carry a stipend, though we are happy to work with students to help them obtain credit from their college or university.

Information about the project (titled “Artists’ book accessibility and research”) and how to apply for an internship can be found at:
