More than a dozen students are working on a variety of research and digital scholarship projects with the Libraries this summer.
Rachel, a junior at Swarthmore, discusses her Tri-Co Digital Humanities internship in summer 2014, when she created a digital exhibit on boy heroes in American dime novels using the materials in Haverford's Quaker & Special Collections.
Student Library Interns
The Libraries engage student interns to work on a variety of projects. These projects are developed following a collaborative, active learning style. Students are paired with a subject expert in the library to work closely on a project that develops their research and scholarship capacity, advances their critical literacy skills, and simultaneously gives them a meaningful product for their portfolio. Faculty will also serve as partners on many of the projects.
