LIBRARY INTERNSHIP:

The Library Internship in a recognized Library/Information Centre (Course Number: LIS 10, Sem II) is a 6 credit course to be undertaken during the second semester of the Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) Programme. It allows student to work in real world settings, guided by knowledgeable and experienced supervisors. Internships also help in exploring career options and provide potential employers a valuable perspective on a student's interests and experience. An internship is an individualized training program that combines learning new library skills outside the classroom and the demonstration of those skills according to a planned schedule of activities. An intern works with a internship/field supervisor and faculty supervisor selected for the purpose to develop a practical training program on a particular aspect of librarianship. The duration of the internship would be four weeks.
