Students: Check out the great opportunities below!
Current Projects (May 2022 - April 2023)
Fall Development Award (announced Summer 2022): Each Fall, NNLM Region 3 offers a competitive award for LIS graduate students in our region which funds attendance to an MLA chapter conference. This award serves to introduce the future LIS workforce to the health sciences, trusted National Library of Medicine (NLM) resources, and develop their professional skills. With coaching from a talented NNLM professional, each awardee delivers a presentation on an NLM resource at an MLA chapter conference. These student presentations are a conference highlight at each year; students should view this as an opportunity to network with and impress future employers. Student presentations are typically well-attended by a range of health sciences librarians from around our region.
After the chapter conference, students are asked to write a brief report about their experience and are given the opportunity to engage in professional development with the NNLM Region 3 office.
Internships (announced November 2022): We host 2 interns/practicum students each academic year. Each intern works on a project of their choosing that corresponds with their professional interests. These projects support the goals of NNLM Region 3. Interns have regular meetings with staff and submit weekly progress reports. Students present their final deliverables to staff at the end of the semester.
Employment (announced as needed): NNLM Region 3 believes in the value and potential of the library students as leaders in our region. To that end, we periodically post employment opportunities that are especially suitable for current students or early career information professionals. Please keep an eye out for these postings by joining our mailing list.
