Apply to be “Library Labs” assistant for the spring semester

Dominican University’s Rebecca Crown Library is seeking students to be Library Labs assistants. You can visit the Library Labs site at http://research.dom.edu/labs. This is an unpaid position. Library Labs assistants will be assigned (based on interest and experience) emerging technologies to research and test for implementation at the Rebecca Crown Library. Students will write a report on the technology to post on the library blog and be recognized on the library website. This is open to any students; we particularly invite graduate students in Library and Information Science.

To apply, please submit your resume and a brief writing sample (250-500 words) to Margaret Heller, Web Services Librarian at mheller@dom.edu. Applications are due January 13.

A former participant had this to say…

Becoming a Library Labs volunteer is a fantastic way to keep up with emerging technologies, especially if you are interested in libraries and information science. By researching new tools and websites, you’re not just learning about what’s out there, you’re investigating and determining the future of libraries. Your research and recommendations will add value to the Rebecca Crown Library and benefit the DU community at large. The resulting blog posts will also serve as great items in your portfolio. An even if you’re not a GSLIS student, we could use your perspective and skills.
