Endowed University Libraries Internship Program -- As OSU continues to attract high-achieving students, internship opportunities will provide the university with a competitive edge to recruit and retain the best undergraduate and graduate students. Many students want internship opportunities to expand their horizons beyond classrooms and labs, and internships can add powerfully to their learning experience and future opportunities.
Trevor Sandgathe, a former OSU Libraries intern and a library staff member since 2010, says, “My internship with the Oregon State University Libraries afforded me the rare opportunity to complete an extensive program of research into one of the library’s most unique book collections, gave me hands-on training in flexible web publishing technology, and bridged my transition from full-time student to member of the workforce. The opportunity to publish and promote my work as a learning curriculum through the library’s online presence proved to be the perfect capstone to my undergraduate experience at OSU as well as an invaluable step toward a career in the archival profession.”
