We are a small academic library with membership in the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.

Applicants should be enrolled in the CUA LIS program and be able to devote at least 10 hours per week to on-site practicum work.

Potential projects include: reference and instruction evaluation; weeding and collection development; accessioning and copy cataloging; programming and student engagement; website improvement and updates for the DC library website; psychological assessments collections research; and open access/open educational resources.
