Pre-library students can intern in the St. Scholastica Library to gain experience in a variety of areas including public services, technical services and archives. Paid internships and/or credit-bearing independent study courses are also occasionally available to pre-library students.
Librarians help people find and evaluate information from many sources. Most librarians, such as those in public and academic libraries, maintain library collections and do other work to make information accessible. Academic librarians are often part of the institution's faculty. A second subject master's degree or Ph.D. is often required or encouraged in order to work in an academic library. In small libraries, librarians are often responsible for many or all aspects of library operations. They may manage a staff of library assistants and technicians. In larger libraries, librarians usually focus on a specific area, such as public services (reference), technical services (cataloging) or administrative services. Special librarians work in settings other than academic or public libraries. Law firms, hospitals, businesses, museums, government agencies, laboratories and many other groups have their own discipline-specific libraries with special librarians. The main purpose of these libraries and information centers is to serve the information needs of the organization that houses the library. Therefore, special librarians collect and organize materials focused on those subjects. The following are a few examples of special librarians:
