Practicum in academic library with membership in the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Washington, DC

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology at Washington, D.C. is seeking a graduate student in Library and Information Science for a practicum opportunity. We are a small academic library with membership in the National Network of Libraries of Medicine. Our materials are oriented towards psychology and counseling materials, and include a unique collection of over 150 different psychological assessments.

No experience in health sciences is necessary, but an interest in psychology would ensure a good fit for any practicum participant. 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. The DC campus library is managed by a solo librarian, so students will have the opportunity to shadow and participate in all aspects of academic librarianship, in addition to taking on a project of their own choosing for the duration of the practicum. 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.

Any applications for or questions about this position should be sent to Taylor Diken (MSLIS ’18) at More information about TCSPP and the DC library can be found at
