NCompass Live: The Internship: A Win-Win Situation

265

Published on

Recorded on May 7, 2014.
NCompass Live - http://nlc.nebraska.gov/ncompasslive/

From advertising for the position to saying goodbye, thoughtful planning of an internship will go a long way to making the experience meaningful for you and your intern. Kathryn Brockmeier and Laura Johnson, from the Nebraska Library Commission, will also discuss ways your library and your community can benefit from an internship at your library. Time for brainstorming and sharing will follow the presentation.

The internship program is made possible by a Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services to the Nebraska Library Commission, in partnership with the Nebraska Library Association.
